"In Kinuko Craft's worlds, nature is a magical force, always blooming, recreating, one beauty appearing after another wherever you look. Winter is very far away, perhaps only a dream. The worlds of air and water flow into one another... Women are more likely found than men; even within the castle on the hill, an emporess rules... The sacred Feminine becomes, in her work, a force impossible to belittle or ignore."
- from the Foreword by Patricia McKillip
