"Lovers of fantasy will appreciate this title," raved Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly called it a "fine novel." It is the story of Jenna. Raised on a mountainside, she learned the arts of the warrior, and from the mountain women the magic of the ancient lore. But the greatest magic of all was her ability to call forth her dark sister from the depths of the mirror of the land of light and shadow.
Skada was the dark one, able to exist only when the moonlight cast a shadow or lamplight flickered in a darkened room.
This is the story of Jenna and Skada. Sister Light and Sister Dark.

This book was well crafted. The history and religion of the Hames was well thought out. The characters were well done. And the story is sometimes suspenseful, sometimes just interesting. It's the first book I've read by this author and I plan to read more.
Jane Yolen weaves an intricately beautiful story that is all together a love story between a woman and a man, a woman and her people (which she comes to find are much broader in scope than she originally believed) and a woman and her inner self, her "dark sister." It is absolutely satisfying to read and wander the world that Yolen created. Her language is poetry. It flows off the tongue with grace and elegance. I thoroughly enjoyed these two books that comprise the Great Alta Saga! White Jenna: Book Two of the Great Alta Saga
Classic feminist science fiction of my youth, still just as intriguing as an adult.
