Kabira, Garai, Estegi, Orseola, Sulani, Clarás, Iona and Daera. These are the names of the women of Naondel, the second book of the Red Abbey Chronicles by Maria Turtschaninoff. The story begins like a fairytale, a young woman (Kabira) from a notable family falls in love with a young man (Iskan), son of the vizier, that lives in the palace. She falls in love with his eyes while he acts as if he is not interested in her, rather in her younger, prettier sister. One night, she discovers he loves her back and lets go as teenagers do. Being the eldest daughter, it is her duty to keep watch of the family’s secrets and sacred source of power – Anji, the spring. But love blinds her and from that moment on, the tragedy unravels and the voices of the rest of the women are heard until they all come together in the end.

Our long-term goal is to read one book written by a female author from every country of the world. Follow our progress!
