Publisher Comments:

Praise for Jean Hegland's Into the Forest

" A] beautifully written and often profoundly moving novel."

--San Francisco Chronicle

"A work of extraordinary power, insight and lyricism, Into the Forest is both an urgent warning and a passionate celebration of life and love."

--Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade

*"From the first page, the sense of crisis and the lucid, honest voice of the...narrator pull the reader in....A truly admirable addition to a genre defined by the very high standards of George Orwell's 1984."

--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Beautifully written."

--Kirkus Reviews

"This beautifully written story captures the essential nature of the sister bond: the fierce struggle to be true to one's own self, only to learn that true strength comes from what they are able to share together."

--Carol Saline, co-author of Sisters

"Jean Hegland's sense of character is firm, warm, and wise.... A] fine first novel."

--John Keeble, author of Yellowfish

From the Trade Paperback edition.
