Fundamentalist, evangelist, and righteous groups pool their resources and energy to bring back Manu's law of subjugation in 2400 BCE. The Mandate of Heaven revisits beliefs, rites, and institutions established during the 4000 years of patriarchy, slavery, and feudalism, and places them smack in the middle of a modern context. Assumed power and privilege, ad hoc departments, old laws, torture, ancient scrolls, violence, and hard traditional attitudes play roles in an abduction that derails side by side with modern technology, an educated public, intelligent police forces, unusual sleuth hounds, electronic planning, and high-speed resolution.

About the Author:

Louise Goueffic B.A., B.Ed., studied in France and collected twenty thousand items of speech concerning our species. She categorized and analyzed ten thousand that she now calls the Patriarchal Code, which led her to see the close relationship between laws, society and the development of language. Her first novel reflects the consequences of this relationship.

Review:

THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

THE FICTION SHELF The right to rule is a struggle that has been fought of millennia and still lives on in everyday life. "Mandate of Heaven" is a novel spun out of the ideas that have formed our society. As modernism seeks to change things, it is threatened by an ancient order which seeks to return to patriarchy, slavery and feudalism that made up the world for thousands of years.Spinning a unique tale of life and our progress or lack of it, "Mandate of Heaven" is a unique read very much worth considering. --James Cox, Midwest Book Review

Goueffic reminds us of how powerful language can negatively affect attitudes. The story is a good yarn involving the kidnapping of protagonist "fem" by a strong male organization determined to crush "feme" independence. The ending is a riveting page turner, culminating in a modern day "shoot out" to the rescue - the outcome of which I won't give away. --Landy Hall, Burlington ON
