My review of The Quest for Home-Jacqui Murray
5 out of 5 stars.★★★★★
This story takes place where Survival leaves off. Xhosa and her people are on a quest for a new home. She has a small tight group, including a wolf, that she can depend on. Xhosa leads with compassion and courage. Her goal: keep her people safe. The odds are stacked against her, weather, rival bands and worst of all betrayal from an unexpected source, still she perseveres.
Murray has created a story rich in history and has built a solid world with a colorful cast of characters. I found myself rooting for the protagonists and hoping the villains got their comeuppance.
 I can’t begin to imagine the hours of research, not to mention the actual writing time, that went into this wonderful gem of a story. I highly recommend this book. It’s a must read for those who love prehistoric fiction.
Available at Amazon.

  15. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. The heroine is a strong one and congrats on the book Jacqui. I had my biopsy today....can I say this was one of the most painful days I have experienced. I think it was the meds they gave me that made me feel like my sides were being stretched on the rack. The actual biopsy was 10 seconds of hell. I thought I could go back to work...um....that’s a big no. I am finally feeling better now so will be able to sleep. I won’t know the results until October 27th. At least it’s over with and I am going to enjoy the weekend

  17. Hope you had a great weekend too, Sandra. As for prehistoric fiction... the Missus would tell you her blue Hubster has something in common with anything prehistoric. Hope you're doing fine.
