(From the publisher):
In the midst of wild and rocky Cornwall, two little girls listen entranced as Grandmother Dummer tells them the story of Woman. A universal and international tale, crossing all borders of time and place, it follows Eve as she travels along a tortuous winding path, donning her different disguises as she goes: the Other Woman, the Whore, the Madonna, the Courtesan, the Bluestocking, and the Witch. Thus the history of Woman begins: not the dry old stuff of Bible, myth and fable, but the sensual, sexual, earth-moving story of Eve.
