Will Lesbian Witches Save the World?



An epic lesbian utopia novel that begins in 1980s and ends sometime around next year.

Robin claims she can remember her past lives—all of them, in agonizing detail, going back to the Ancient Greeks and Amazons. Now the year is 1983, and she uses her accumulated fortune to establish a community of lesbian witches near Santa Cruz, California. Even in feminist Santa Cruz, their prosperity threatens the neighbors, and inevitably the well-meaning progressives. As Robin and her friends fight for survival, they discover a secret that would undermine Patriarchy. Will they have time to use it before all they’ve worked for is destroyed?
