Daughters of an Emerald Dusk

by Katherine V. Forrest

Fifty-five years have passed since 4,000 women escaped a tyrannical Earth and colonized the planet of Maternas. The women of the Unity have brought children into their world, the first in the history of humankind to inherit a legacy of ultimate freedom and possibility.

But these children are a breed unto themselves. They have bonded and communicate with each other in a way the older generation cannot fathom, and most disturbing of all, they question many of the Unity’s cherished precepts, laying claim to a rival standard of conduct.
Into this widening schism walks young Joss. She becomes deeply involved with Emerald, a woman who struggles to locate her long-lost daughter and finds herself caught between two factions in a burgeoning conflict of the gravest proportions.

With Daughters of an Emerald Dusk, Forrest has created her most electrifying and suspenseful novel yet in this acclaimed series that began with Daughters of a Coral Dawn.

Lambda Book Report
Pam Keesey: The third installment in the fascinating story of the women who colonized the planet Maternas, this is the follow-up to Daughters of a Coral Dawn (1984) and Daughters of an Amber Noon (2002). In the telling of this tale, set 50 years after Amber Noon, Forrest captures the ethereal, otherworldly, second generation offspring of the women of Maternas... Forrest has given us both an entertaining and thought-provoking account. Fans of Coral Dawn and Amber Noon will welcome this addition to the series and Forrest has still left us wondering what will happen to this colony of women next.
