Marrah, a brave and gifted priestess, journeys across war-torn Europe to the cave paintings of Western France and to the temples of Sardinia, where she finds barbarism, the brutalization of women, and environmental destruction

Blackwell North Amer
The Year the Horses Came vividly evokes the violent moment in prehistory when marauding nomads brought horses, male gods, and war to a Europe that had known peace for thousands of years. Against this perilous backdrop, a passionate, dangerous love develops between Marrah, a brave and gifted priestess, and Stavan, one of the warriors sent to invade her peace-loving land. Brilliantly capturing the lives of those women and men caught in this life-shattering crossfire, Mackey traces the young Marrah's treacherous path across Europe, from the shores of Brittany and the cave paintings of western France to the temples of Sardinia and the Steppes of the East. Though Marrah finds barbarism, the brutalization of women, and environmental destruction, her stunning journey also reveals the human capacity for love, compassion, and enduring faith.
