Summary

It's said that women and men are from two different planets when it comes to communication, but how can they overcome the obstacles of prehistoric times when one of them simply doesn't have the ability to comprehend language?  

Ehd's a caveman living on his own in a harsh wilderness. He's strong and intelligent but completely alone. When he finds a beautiful, young woman in his pit trap, it's obvious to him that she is meant to be his mate. He doesn't know where she came from; she's wearing some pretty odd clothing, and she makes a lot of noises with her mouth that give him a headache. Still, he's determined to fulfill his purpose in life - provide for her, protect her, and put a baby in her.  

Elizabeth doesn't know where she is or exactly how she got there. She's confused and distressed by her predicament, and there's a caveman hauling her back to his cave home. She's not at all interested in Ehd's primitive advances, and she just can't seem to get him to listen. No matter what she tries, getting her point across to this primitive but beautiful man is a constant - and often hilarious - struggle.   

With only each other for company, they must rely on one another to fight the dangers of the wild and prepare for the winter months. As they struggle to coexist, theirs becomes a love story that transcends language and time.  

Contains mature themes.

It grew on me and left me with a fond feeling

So the caveat to this very high rating is that you definitely need to suspend all reality, and be in the mood for this type of book. It’s more along the lines of one of those sexy romance alien abduction type books. However, whereas those types of books usually annoy me loads and I eye roll all the time, this one slowly charmed me as it went on and my early prediction of 3 stars got pushed higher and higher. It seemed a little slow at times but in hindsight I feel like it meant I got to know the characters more and I got absorbed into their world a bit more each time.

I was properly immersed in their world, it made me feel, and I thought the ending was great and it left me on such a pleasant high that I thought it deserved 5 stars. My ratings are influenced greatly by level of enjoyment and emotional engagement, and not just literary talent as I think books should give you an experience and not just tell a story. I would almost say this book is a guilty pleasure, but actually I don’t feel guilty as this book deserves more than that. Within its genre it’s so much better than the competition. However, if this type of book isn’t your bag, you’ll hate it. Personally, I like a bit of light escapism occasionally.

Still one of the best books I've ever read!

This is my second time reading this book (there will likely be a 3rd, 4th and 5th time) and the narration does not disappoint. I absolutely love that the entire story is told by the man who has more fingers than words. Funny, moving, warm happy feeling at the end. The only thing I could ask for is Beh's version of events. Loved the end!

Best Love Story!

I never take the time to write reviews but this time I had to. This story was exceptional. The reading was good too. The story is just so different and beautiful. About love and sacrifice. To the few people complaining that the "caveman" should not know the words that he is using - I do not understand this complaint. These are his THOUGHTS. Of course he does not know the word "pink", but he does know what pink is. Of course he describes sex as "making a baby" - this is a time where things are so harsh every action you do has a purpose. Of course he uses "big words", again they are his THOUGHTS. You would have the "big words" when your picturing something in your mind. This author just really knocked this one out of the park. Beautiful story with a new twist (and God knows it is rare you find anything original out there). I just wish she had more available on Audible. I would definitely want to read/listen to it!!!

Different take on time travel

Most time travel stories seem to hurl the protagonist back to an amazing point in history ... Tudor England, the battle of Culloden, Deadwood, MT. This author manages to strip out all of the trappings in the genre and leave something totally elemental. I enjoyed it. Especially the singular perspective of the hero who struggles to understand his mate but loves her regardless.

This listen is just as good as the read!

I love this story! I have read this book at least three or four times. And I am sure I will listen to this audio book at least that many times also. This is a wonderful love story. The narration is wonderful.

Kinda Awful. Kinda Interesting.

Narrator’s Voice and choice of words were implausible. You definitely had to suspend belief in anything real here. Was it intentionally written to be so erotic? The last final story development was touching, however.

Missed opportunity

This was an intriguing premise — a woman sent back to Paleolithic times. But the story was a shallow romance (mainly a vehicle for explicit sex scenes), with very little challenge or danger and nonexistent science. Homo sapiens incapable of language? Paleolithic tribes unaware of which plants were edible? Plus an oh-so-sensitive New Age caveman? Come off it.

great story!

I liked this book very much. It's was interesting to see how caveman would try to understand modern human. Very sweet and lovely story!

It was a nice story but it was so boring

It is a nice story but it was so boring and it did not have the characters switch back and forwarth that we can understand both characters and it only had the male side through the hole book so it was boring and the person that was voice play the book was boring as well
