       Additional Information  
      Katherine Forrest's best-selling Daughters of a Coral Dawn first appeared in 1984 and became an instant classic. Through seven printings, including the 10th anniversary edition published in 1994, this story of women creating their own world after escaping an oppressive society has continued to gain fans and influence writers for 18 years.

    Late in the 22nd century, 4,000 women escape the tyranny of a male-dominated Earth and colonize the planet of Maternas. The story of how these pioneers created a society and culture in accord with their nature makes up the heart of this exhilarating, erotic, and hauntingly beautiful novel. But men eventually discover Maternas, and the women are faced with a critical choice.

    Katherine Forrest is also the author of the lesbian romantic classic Curious Wine as well as the groundbreaking Kate Delafield mystery series that includes the best-sellers Apparition Alley, Liberty Square, and Sleeping Bones. She lives in San Francisco.
