A Wiccan priestess and her daughter leave California for a new home in a small community near a Montana forest, thinking they will find the peace and quiet they need to put their lives back together. However, they quickly find themselves leading a rebellion against a politically powerful rancher, nicknamed Kingdom Come, who is the head of a secretive alt-right group called The Priesthood. The Priesthood is plotting to take over America and make it into an Old Testament theocracy. Rumor has it, Kingdom Come murdered his wife for committing adultery.  
 
With his daughter in rebellion, environmentalists fighting a coal plant he wants to build, and the Priesthood's many secrets to protect, the last thing he needs is for the two witches to trespass on his domain.  
 
Because the Priesthood rules the small community with fear, the two women soon discover nothing is as it appears to be. Everyone has secrets they are desperately keeping. The local minister's wife is using the church basement to "break at least 30 of the Ten Commandments." Her daughter is organizing a coven witches to take her father and the Priesthood down. And then, Anaya, the powerful Wiccan priestess who insists that lies are always a weakness, finds herself lying to keep her new friends safe.  
 
Finally, after so many lies, the truth can no longer be denied, and everyone has to face the consequences. The book ends with this question raised about Kindom Come, but might be asked of all of us after we elected Donald Trump president:  
 
"So many of us thought him noble and moral, a model of righteousness and piety. We elected him to office, we interpreted our lives by his, what we thought best in ourselves we saw in him. His moods became the weather in our community, the cloud upon our brow, the sun in our smiles. So, how could we have been so deceived by this man? His cruelties, his deceits, his hatred, all are so apparent now . . . How could we have not seen through to what he was? " 
 
"The more thoughtful among us wonder if his faults and failings weren't our own for having raised him up so high among us. They ponder what hatred, what anger, what fear down deep in the soul of our community could have guided us to elect him our leader. A lie is but a seed these people say. For it to sprout, grow, and bear fruit, the soil in which it is planted must be prepared and fertile. If Kingdom Come's lies bloomed and flourished in our community, the fault was as much ours as it was his. . . How can we ever be forgiven for that? For seeing what we saw, and still having seen none of it?" 

 
Although Jezebels of the Earth is set in a small community in Montana, it anticipates what the entire country could turn into if Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and their supporters get their way. By turns, a rebellion against patriarchy, the alt-right, and the corporations destroying the earth, it would reframe the way we live upon the earth, trying to find a way to heal the harm we are doing.

From the Author:

I wrote this novel because I was increasingly frustrated with how our political system is dealing with global warming.  Climate scientists almost unanimously agree that global warming is happening, is human caused, and will have catastrophic consequences for both nature and civilization if we continue as we have.  And yet climate deniers have been able to prevent the change we desperately need.
So, that given, how do you change the world?  Scientists and environmentalists have been doing it the way the goddess Athena might advise, with dispassionate reason and cold evidence, and they are failing.   So, my heroines resort to what the goddess Aphrodite would likely insist is a more effective strategy, using the wild energy of sex.  There is, of course, considerable danger in this strategy, particularly when you are dealing with conservative politicians, who are terrified of what would happen if the erotic energy within them were released, but, as my novel shows, that is the problem.  The climate crisis is upon us exactly because the erotic energy within all of us has been bent to destructive purpose.

About the Author:

Wandering Meadowlark is an environmental activist living in Montana who has tried everything prime and proper to stop global warming--politely testifying before the legislature, tempered letters to the editor, and even lawsuits that weren't quite so tempered.  And then Donald Trump got elected president.  At wit's end, desperate to save the earth, Meadowlark decided to try something that isn't so prim or proper.  The result is Jezebels of the Earth.

Mother and daughter witches, Anaya and Naomi, are banished to Montana for an environmental protest that ran afoul of the powers that be. They think they have found paradise, but they soon discover that the wilderness has fallen as much as they have. The forest is withering and dying, and the rain has dried up. Before they even have a chance to move into their new home, they find themselves confronting a powerful rancher (nicknamed by his detractors Kingdom Come) who is a state senator and the head of a secretive religious group called the Priesthood. Rumor has it, he murdered his wife for adultery. With a daughter in rebellion, environmentalists fighting a coal mine he wants to start on his ranch, and the Priesthoods many secrets to protect, the last thing he needs is for the two women to talk to his daughter. Jezebels of the Earth is a novel about confronting the powers that have created the climate crisis. By telling the story about a small town in Montana, perched, as the locals describe it, at the end of the world, it explores possibilities for healing the earth. This item ships from La Vergne,TN.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Join the resistance! A Wiccan priestess and her daughter leave California for a new home in a small community near a Montana forest, thinking they will find the peace and quiet they need to put their lives back together. However, they quickly find themselves leading a rebellion against a politically powerful rancher, nicknamed Kingdom Come, who is the head of a secretive alt-right group called The Priesthood. The Priesthood is plotting to take over America and make it into an Old Testament theocracy. Rumor has it, Kingdom Come murdered his wife for committing adultery. With his daughter in rebellion, environmentalists fighting a coal plant he wants to build, and the Priesthood s many secrets to protect, the last thing he needs is for the two witches to trespass on his domain. Because the Priesthood rules the small community with fear, the two women soon discover nothing is as it appears to be. Everyone has secrets they are desperately keeping. The local minister s wife is using the church basement to break at least 30 of the Ten Commandments. Her daughter is organizing a coven witches to take her father and the Priesthood down. And then, Anaya, the powerful Wiccan priestess who insists that lies are always a weakness, finds herself lying to keep her new friends safe. Finally, after so many lies, the truth can no longer be denied, and everyone has to face the consequences. The book ends with this question raised about Kindom Come, but might be asked of all of us after we elected Donald Trump president: So many of us thought him noble and moral, a model of righteousness and piety. We elected him to office, we interpreted our lives by his, what we thought best in ourselves we saw in him.

The more thoughtful among us wonder if his faults and failings weren t our own for having raised him up so high among us. They ponder what hatred, what anger, what fear down deep in the soul of our community could have guided us to elect him our leader. A lie is but a seed these people say. For it to sprout, grow, and bear fruit, the soil in which it is planted must be prepared and fertile. If Kingdom Come s lies bloomed and flourished in our community, the fault was as much ours as it was his. . . How can we ever be forgiven for that? For seeing what we saw, and still having seen none of it?
