Rachel grew up in an island paradise in the Pacific NW reading classics and kayaking (sometimes at the same time). She is a zealous Renaissance reader who loves alliterative allegories, living a lyrical Left Bank lifestyle, and exploring fantastical fables, facts, fantasy and fiction. She also has a penchant for profound poetry, practical philosophies, esoteric ideas, bettering herself with Brene Brown's latest and greatest, and seriously surreal sentences.

I serendipitously picked up The Power by Naomi Alderman at a time when many of the women (and a few brave men) I know were joining the global #MeToo conversation. This light and engaging read sucked me in and promptly turned all of my assumptions about gender and power on their heads. The messages of The Power have kept me pondering the deeply nuanced issues of power and gender in our society through the current scandals in Hollywood and beyond. I think this book will appeal to science fiction fans, fantasy buffs, and historical fiction enthusiasts alike!
