    An intriguing, compelling read.

    This is actually two stories - one of a prehistoric woman and one of a modern day woman. It could be said that the bones of the prehistoric woman being studied by the modern day woman connects them. It doesn't feel to me like it does. Rather, each story is connected by the struggles each faces. Although very different in nature, each draws upon inner resources to meet their challenges. I enjoyed the various discussions about genes and what I am assuming is current knowledge about our genes. I was also intrigued by the greater connection to the unseen world of spirit that the prehistoric woman had. The modern day woman was too caught up in the science of life and not comfortable in the unseen. I read it in one day and would like to read the next book - I would like to see where the author goes with this. Will she be able to find a way to connect them using the current ideas about our universe and the nature of time being presented by quantum physics?

    A potentially great story disappointingly told

    I was looking forward to this. The premise was good and promised an interesting intertwining of two stories. The reality was unfortunately very different. Eloise's character seemed based on a view of a middle aged woman (45!!! For god's sake, that's not middle age) that certainly doesn't match any that I know. She was purportedly a specialist in genome sequencing but that only came out in a lecture style tract. Her work was "difficult" but never described adequately and certainly not in any connection to the remains that had been found. The endless stories of minor incidents in her earlier years were almost unreadable. The story of the woman with her child struggling through significant climate change was what kept me going but it maundered on and, in the end, I decided my time was better spent doing other things. This book is afflicted by a tendency to over-explain, to go on and on and on about small things in an attempt to be "literary" and to gloss over the technicalities it attempts to associate itself with.
