Summary

'...a love song to the strength, beauty and ingenuity of women' - Ann Bannon This best-selling lesbian science fiction novel first appeared in 1984 and became an instant classic. Late in the 22nd century, 4,000 women escape the tyranny of a male-dominated Earth and colonise the planet of Maternas. The story of how these pioneers created a society and culture in accord with their nature makes up the heart of this exhilarating, erotic and hauntingly beautiful novel. When men eventually discover their planet, the women are faced with a critical choice.
