When Sarvet's world hems her in, she pushes back. Her daughter, Livli, does likewise. The Kaunis Clan Onmibus, Sarvet & Livli, presents both their transcendent stories. SARVET'S WANDERYAR Running away leads right back home - or does it? Sarvet walks with a grinding limp, and her mountain culture keeps girls close to home. Worse, her mother emphasizes all the things Sarvet can't do. No matter how gutsy her spirit or bold her defiance, staying put means growing weaker. Yet only boys get wanderyars. Lacking their supplies and training, how can Sarvet escape? Can dreams - even big dreams - and inner certainty transform impossible barricades into a way out? LIVLI'S GIFT In Kaunis-spa's magical spring, Livli achieves spectacular cures. A born pioneer, she hopes to match new ways for healing with new ways of living. But the Kaunis-sisters fear rapid change. While Livli pushes forward the new, one influential foe champions the old. Home will keep its ancient customs, even if Livli loses everything. Must surrender spell defeat? Or could letting go harness real power? PRAISE FOR SARVET'S WANDERYAR ..".great introduction to the Hammarleeding's society that left me craving more. Sarvet is a wonderfully strong female character who you also meet again in Livli's Gift." - reader review "Breezed through Sarvet's Wanderyar; delightful! I think this is my favourite..." - reader review ..".it's an entrancing story with a character you care about, and desperately want to succeed... At first I saw Paiam as the clear antagonist, but I came to sympathize with her. This makes for a complex interaction between the two characters that rages almost completely in the subtext-very clever on Ney-Grimm's part, and very effective... On a side note, one of my favourite things about Ney-Grimm's work is her treatment of fantastical creatures...the pegasi seem ethereal...creatures of light and gauze that are somehow the most real things in the world." - Speaking to the Eyes review PRAISE FOR LIVLI'S GIFT "Extremely fascinating and insightful..." - reader review "I'm enthralled by the world..." - reader review "EXCELLENT!!! A thoroughly enjoyable read!" - reader review ABOUT THE AUTHOR J.M. Ney-Grimm lives with her husband and children in Virginia, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She's learning about permaculture gardening and debunking popular myths about food. The rest of the time she reads Robin McKinley, Diana Wynne Jones, and Lois McMaster Bujold, plays boardgames like Settlers of Catan, rears her twins, and writes stories set in her troll-infested North-lands.
