Feminists in general will probably dislike this book,

On the contrary ~ for me (as a feminist) the book describes strong characters, given the times. Gwenhwyfar is in fact a victim (as were most women then.) Her strength is in her determination to uphold her religion; to choose her lover & in the end, when he proved himself less the hero she had imagined him to be, to be her own woman even though it meant the nunnery.

As an exploration of Goddess-centric practice, Mists is considered a classic by many eco-feminist Goddess women.
