The Healer's Garden by Nina Pierce

I give it four+ stars

The Healer's Garden by Nina Pierce offers a glimpse into a fascinating future world. A world ruled by women and where man are second class citizens, useful only for procreation and manual labor. A world where women for all their power are not truly free.
Until one man and woman do the unthinkable, they fall in love.
Ms Pierce deals quite well with what could have been to some people a touchy subject matter. I found The Healer's Garden to be a very well written and interesting story by a talented new author. And look forward in the future to reading more of her work.

In a lesbian society, mating with a male, even if it is to save the human race, is a distasteful task and one Healer Jahara Hriznek has successfully avoided--but time and excuses have both run out. Adhering to the outdated procreation law of the twenty-first century, she takes up residence at the government breeding facility known as the Garden of Serenity.
Brenimyn is a gifted breeding instructor at the Garden. Forced to copulate with all females who request his services, he is tired of the sexist government enslaving men. He lives to find the woman who will fulfill his destiny and help him bring about social equality.
Can Brenimyn and Jahara learn to trust each other and their hearts and allow love to bring about a new world order in The Healer's Garden?

Thank you for taking time to review The Healer's Garden, Kasey. I'm glad you enjoyed the book. I fell in love with Brenimyn and Jahara as they fell in love with each other!
