From acclaimed author, Gina Martin, comes the much-anticipated second book in the When She Wakes series.
Walking the Threads of Time, a time-slip novel extraordinaire.
In lifetime after lifetime, she who was Atvasfara, High Priestess of Isis, seeks the others of the Thirteen as they appear – and disappear – in different configurations, genders and moments in human history from ancient Egypt and China, through medieval Europe, the Cree community in Canada, via Ghana and the battle fields of the First World War.
In this gripping sequel, the thirteen vision carriers first introduced in Sisters of the Solstice Moon face death and danger to serve the Goddess in the times when She is forbidden. Travel with them as they navigate through patriarchal history, seeking to save Her wisdom in the darkest of times.
An imagining… or is it a remembering… of the end of matriarchy and the emergence of global patriarchy, this book brings alive long dead cultures from around the world and brings us closer to the lost wisdoms that we know in our bones.
“This is magic realism at its most sacred feminine.”
PRAISE FOR GINA MARTIN
Author, teacher and priestess Gina Martin has woven together visions of the mysteries of the Sacred Feminine from the past, present and future, with an evocative and sensual urgency…?
Lush with rich, descriptive language that carries the reader into the cultures and rituals she dreams into being, one has only to let oneself be carried deeply into the heart of these rites and the important spiritual messages they contain.
Sharynne NicMhacha, scholar and author of The Divine Feminine in Ancient Europe, Celtic Myth and Religion, and Queen of the Night
A generous offering of heart and spirit, expertly crafted as it envelopes the reader in its sweet embrace and has us caring deeply for the women on their journey, with all their qualities – both human and divine. Filled with wisdom and insight, this tale of love, healing and magic is a powerfully moving and transformative story for our time, as we reconnect with our own inner wisdom and knowing. I loved this book.
Celeste Lovick, author of Medicine Song
Gina Martin weaves a magical tale of possibility. Parting the tides to bring forth a new/old understanding of our shared past; A past in which the goddess – and therefore all life – is held sacred. And that is exactly what we need right now.
Jessica M. Starr, author of Waking Mama Luna and Maid, Mother, Crone, Other
Epic and intimate, mythic and maternal. Reading this book feels like remembering a legend I’ve known all my life, buried deep in my bones, but like the thirteen sisters themselves, long ago forgotten. Martin breathes narrative details into the embers of this story that make it crackle to life.
