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."

"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."

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

--John Keeble, author of Yellowfish
