Marge Piercy recommends

Motherlines (1978)
(Holdfast, book 2)
Suzy McKee Charnas
"[Motherlines is] a pioneer exercise in women's fantasies of independence, skill, freedom. It has a robust, earthy beauty. She has a genius for grasping ideas and dreams that are in the air and making them concrete and dramatic in her fiction."

The Year the Horses Came (1993)
(Earthsong, book 1)
Mary Mackey
"Vivid, dramatic, compelling."
