This is a marvelous book about Ged's recovery after book 3, and Tenar and a girl she saved from death. Worth reading!

Not often that you read a fantasy novel that has so little magic in it. The book is a sensitive study of altogether more normal life in Earthsea. I heartily recommend.

An interesting book about human relationships, magic, mages and a dragon who saves the day. I liked this little read but, of course, Ursula LeGuin is one of my favorite authors. The child known as Therru has been cruelly treated by her parents and their friends - raped, beaten and thrown into a fire that damages her face and arm. Tenar, a woman with potential magic who decided to live a different life with a husband and children, adopts the child, loving her with all her heart. Ged, Sparrowhawk, or Hawk is a wizard who loses his magic saving his friend the king. Eldest, the dragon, speaks to Ged and claims Therru (Tehanu) as his own. It's a good read.
