The Gathering Night Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Margaret Elphinstone Î 4 Summary Read The Gathering Night Ome together for their annual Gathering Night who there will listen to the voice of a womanThe Gathering Night is a story of conflict loss love adventure and devastating natural disasters This utterly enchanting pre historical novel is set deep in our stone age past but resonates as a parable of our troubled planet 8000 years on.
