Only women and girls are allowed in the Red Abbey, a haven from abuse and poverty. Maresi, a thirteen-year-old novice who fled famine and loss four years prior, is happy in the abbey, safe under the protection of the Mother, contentedly doing her chores and stealing time in the vast library of the House of Knowledge. But then Jai, a girl with a dark past, disrupts Maresi's idyllic existence.

Jai has escaped her home after watching her father and brothers bury her beloved sister alive in an honor killing. And when the dangers of the outside world follow Jai into the sacred space of the abbey, Maresi can no longer hide behind her books and routines--she must act.

A unique story line geared towards the sci-fi fantasy, feminist fans. The Red Abbey is a haven for girls who have nowhere else to go. Knowledge and strength are key elements in this story filled with smart, kind, and strong women of all ages. A bit too feminist for my taste, but nonetheless a good recommendation for the the mature teen who can handle a bit of rough content.
