Item description for Mother Feral's Love by Lawrence Barker...
Four days. That is all the time Evrandal the Feral has to save her child, Broglin, from slavery in the dreaded mines of Tuscum. Four days to rescue a daughter who does not even know Evrandal is her mother. Evrandal the Feral, a creature half-human and scorned by society, forbidden by Holy Law from entering the Shrine of the Four Mothers, must now journey through the wild deserts of Vrantum to distant cities to find out who killed a somewhat seedy alchemist. She must protect herself from the wild Ghuls, fearsome creatures of the dark, and even has to ally herself with the Falsepaths, heretics who deny the Four Mothers and Holy Law. She must keep the sorcerous Keeppeaces from learning of her quest, and especially must keep them from learning that Broglin is her daughter. She must avoid being compelled by the Keeppeaces to thrust a knife into her own body, taking her own life. Finally Evrandal must violate Vrantum's highest taboo and cross over the threshold into the Shrine of the Four Mothers, even though doing so condemns her to eternal reincarnation as vermin. She must do all of this to save her daughter. And she must do it in. Four days.

Action-packed love story Jan 27, 2007
Touching and remarkable is Lawrence Barker's exciting new sci-fi special, Mother Feral's Love! This action-packed love story takes place in the city of Vrantum, filled with ancient stone towers and black brick streets. Haunting this place is the Feral named Evrandal.
Now just her name alone can cause certain unrest: It either means, "flower in the wasteland" or "disgusting creature that spreads parasites." Here is a soul that hardly anyone wants to meet, let alone sympathize with. Yet, sympathy is what she deserves.
Evrandel gives birth to her only child who looks completely human! The child's origin must be kept a secret or she will live the life of a Taint (you will need to read the book to see what horror that can entail). So she gives her child to Damel the healer, who raises the child, keeping the secret of her true birthmother. Oh, but, a horrible murder takes place and Damel is blamed for it. This puts Evrandal's child in terrible danger and the Feral only has four days to find the real culprit. If she doesn't, then the fate of Damel and the Feral's child, Broglin, is one you can't even imagine!
I read each page once then twice. Not because it was a difficult read at all. Simply because I couldn't believe what this mother had to go through in her quest to save the one and only child she had. You must read this book to reinforce what is an age-old belief: There is nothing in this world or any like a mother's love!
Lawrence Barker has created a tour de force of amazing love and beauty with this book. I was completely captured by his vivid imagination. I almost believed that Vrantum exists and Evrandal lives. I wanted to help her, to save her time and time again, as she battled any and all forces necessary to save her child. But, will she be able to do that? That is the question I won't answer for you. Read this story of unshakable faith and love. A mother's unbending love. Mother Feral's Love!
