Acclaimed for its deft blending of fantasy, psychology, and archetype, The Wild Mother is a brilliant depiction of the Wild Woman and those who would enslave her out of fear. Its protagonist is Lilith, predecessor of Eve who fled Eden for the woman-inhabited wilderness called the Empty Land. While returning to our own world to claim the 10-year-old daughter she was forced to abandon, Lilith is taken prisoner by Adam Underwood, the child's father. Her liberation by two others Adam has enslaved -- his blindly devoted colleague, Eva, and his still spirited mother -- forms the crux of this powerful reinterpretation of the myth of female destiny.
