Summary Excerpt Comments
n sixth century Europe, a nation’s women mourn their queen, and discover they have an unexpected adversary: their men, who are eager to wrest power away from the women and run the country their way. Led by a warrior named Vlasta, the women set up their own separate settlement, called D?vín, and prepare for battle against the men. Among those who find their way to the women’s settlement is young Šárka, orphaned when raiders destroyed her home. It is foretold that the girl will be important to Vlasta’s success. But Vlasta lusts for vengeance against the men, and is not above using people to get what she wants. Will Šárka pay the price for Vlasta’s willfulness?

In 1982 West Virginia, Maggie reads Šárka’s story as part of a college assignment and wonders why it should be relevant to her. But as her professor nurtures a dream of creating a new D?vín in the West Virginia hills, Maggie finds she is forced to choose between going back to the home and father she has escaped, and the promise of a new, healthy relationship with Andy – and a certain Slavic goddess steps in to help.
