Journal Entry 1 by winggreenbadgerwing from St Albans, Hertfordshire United Kingdom on Monday, September 10, 2012
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, society has divided with men and women living separately and meeting up only a few times a year. The men's society is structured like a military camp, while the women study science and literature and art, and only men who renounce the warrior life come back through the gate to women's country to become servitors.

When Stavia falls for the warrior Chernon she is led to break the rules of women's country and eventually to leave altogether, where she finds that the life for women in societies outside her own is very different, and has to learn that her own society too is very different to its outward appearance.

I enjoyed this -- many thanks greenbadger for sharing.

I haven't yet decided how to BookCross it. I'm a bit nervous of leaving ex-library books in the wild (I worry people won't understand it's okay to pick them up and take them home), but there aren't any wishes for this book. Hmm...

I'm meeting a friend in Embo on Thursday, so I'll take this book along. I have hopes that my friend might be interested enough to take it away, but if not I will leave it in the cafe for someone else to find.
