Hailed by O, The Oprah Magazine as “A Title to Pick Up Now!”

Anna is a fiery tomboy living in ancient Palestine whose androgynous appearance provokes ridicule from the villagers and seeds doubt within her own heart. After tragedy strikes her family, and Anna’s father—disguising her as a boy—sells her to a band of shepherds, she is captured by a mysterious band of women hiding in the desert. When attempts to escape her captors fail, Anna soon discovers that the women’s mystical teachings have unleashed an astonishing power within her.

But when enemies, violently opposed to the subversive nature of the women’s philosophies, threaten to destroy the caves where they hide their secret knowledge, Anna must embark on a hazardous mission to preserve the wisdom of her mentors. Risking death and all she loves, her daring quest ignites a powerful sense of self within Anna and reveals, at last, the full truth of her identity—a shocking revelation that will spark as much outrage as it does hope.   

Sounding both a wake-up-call and a rallying cry for our times, Anna’s coming-of-age is a story of transformation, betrayal, love, loss, deception, and above all, redemption. Readers will cheer for this bold, young heroine and for novelist Kristen Wolf, whose beautifully written book both provokes and inspires.
