STONEHILL DOWNS introduces AVANI, an orphaned hedge witch making a life for herself in a foreign land. She’s self-confidant, stubborn, fallible, and human – just like any other good fantasy protagonist.
This book is a powerful essay on nature versus nurture disguised as a well-accomplished romantic novel. Are our behaviors and traits defined by our genes or by our education and environment? The novel does not answer the question, but it does make a very strong case that every time we blame our genes we limit our potential and excuse bad behavior.
An inclusive book with characters that are varied in race, sexual orientation and non stereotypical when it comes to their gender.
