Read in January, 1991

I first read this book when I was around 12 or so, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Wolf has a wonderful way of making the past come alive, with interesting characters and customs. While it may not be absolutely accurate (what pre-history is?), it is enthralling and realistic in many ways. The romance is a central part of the story, but doesn't overshadow the other plot elements either. Wolf's heroine is a strong woman who doesn't turn into a weak-willed idiot just because she's fallen in love, which is certainly refreshing.
