Publisher's 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.

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.

epic love story

I have read this book twice and listened to the audio book. It is such a well developed story that spans their lifetimes. Ehd is sweet in his absolute devotion to Beh. I guarantee you will be teary eyed at the end. This is such a different love story.

I’m in awe!!

First off what an amazing story my goodness. Hands down the best book I’ve come in contact with for a while, absolutely mind blowing! Incredible narration! Such a captivating, thrilling and moving story, far different from the common romance where is only the voice of the narrator which makes the story bearable. It’s my first book by Shay Savage but now look forward to listening to anything and everything she has or will ever produce.

No Words Needed

First, be aware that this review is written by the member’s mother.
Ever since reading “Clan of the Cave Bear” in the 80’s, I’ve been fascinated with pre-historic fiction. Sadly, there’s not a lot of it out there so I was very excited to see Shay Savage’s “Transcendence” being brought to audio.
It’s a love story full of struggle and misunderstanding but acceptance and peace. The end brought tears to my eyes but it was lovely.

Chris Chambers did a great job with this very difficult interpretation. His “ohhhs” were, well... um, really hot.

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!
