Mores is a story of struggle through the ages and an all consuming need to find the self in the wilderness which pursues all mankind.
Two stories are entwined with millennia separating them. In the ancient Irish forests, a young woman finds herself on the outskirts of her mesolithic tribe. Growing up with no mother left, a strong young woman without the understanding, skills, or knowledge of her place in the complex world. Follow her as she fights with all that she has to prove her worth to her father, herself, and her people while looking for her own sense of peace. Will she finally learn to stop fighting and accept the embrace of her tribe?
An attorney in modern day New York City tells the second story, irrevocably entwined with that of her forebear. She is a lost soul of an entirely different form. The concrete jungle forms a constant weight on her shoulders as she strives to achieve the approval of her successful father. One fateful day, a decision was made which forced all things to change. Catherine finds herself exploring a new world and side of herself she never knew existed. Will she finally achieve her true ambition and resolve her issues?
There was no spoken language, no elaborate ritual or ceremony, just a knowing that they would make each other happy. They had chosen to commit their lives to each other, and only each other.
Millennia from that time there would
be tongue-in-cheek images of men like him clubbing women over the
head and dragging them back to the cave for a less-than-willing
liaison and lifelong 'commitment,' but their reality was not quite
the same. A powerful hunter, he became enthralled with a woman
whose experiences had set her apart. Their love was not unique, but
neither of them knew that, nor would they ever. They never knew
each other as 'husband' or 'wife.' It would be centuries before
such things would enter the common consciousness, but their
commitment was unquestioned and unquestioning.
