This book is a great sequel to "Song of the River". It is very well written and so engrossing that I finished it in just 2 days! Her characters have depth and reality- you can relate with them and their joys and sorrows. One of the reasons I like to read Sue Harrison's books is for her true potrayals of human behaviors with their strenghs and their weaknesses. Too many times authors write their characters as being "perfect" with nothing but positive things happening to them. Sue's stories are beautiful and believable. You will feel like you know her characters and will miss them when you have to put the book down!
I have now read all 6 of Sue Harrison's books in her two trilogies. I needed this one to complete my reading pleasures. I had owned these books for several years but never got around to reading them. After starting to read book 1, I couldn't put any of them down until I finished them. This book was book two in her storyteller series and one might not enjoy it so much if they had not read book one. I really enjoyed all of her books and I would give them all 5 stars.
