I think this was an enchanting and charming short story. I normally don't read short stories, but the description was quite intriguing. It a little over 90 pages so I finished it rather quickly, but I loved it nontheless. I bought the book as soon as I had put it down. I admit MeAnn and Wisp's characters could have been expanded to make them more realistic, but the setting was beautifull described and the plot was completely original. This was the first Anne McCaffrey book I ever read, although some of my other family members have read many of her Dragonrider series. This book got me interested in her as an author and her other works. I wish the story could have been longer, but it stands out as it is. I highly recommend it to anyone.

I think it's wonderful book I,m not a reader but this was a wonderful love story of life I could not put it down. My daughter read it also and felt the same way.

Meanne runs away from her impending arranged marriage. She goes to her childhood cottage that has been long since forgotten and starts her new life there. Wisp comes into her life like a breeze. Together they make a team and strive for new beginnings.

This book was rather boring. Meanne is very hurried character, as she we don't get to see inside her, just what is on her mind NOW. There was too many foreshadowing that actually lets us know what is going to happen. There is no surprise and there is no climax of the story.
Its pretty mellow, a very short read of 94 pages. I honestly kept myself reading, but found myself skimming the pages. I really don't recommend this book, the only McCaffrey story so far that I didn't like.

Many have complained that the book is too small for the price. Or too short. Or that nothing much happens. This book is not an action adventure story. It is the story of two people who were misfits in their former environments with their former companions but learn their own real worth through the relationship that develops between the two of them. It is not too small, it is a beautiful little book, well worth the price. It is not too short, it is just the right length to tell the tale well. And many valuable things happen in your heart.

Well, this book is definately unique and charming in its simplicity of plot yet depth of language. I have never read Anne McCaffrey before but I thought this was wonderful of her to write for her granddaughter, whom I'm sure will love it once she is 12+ years of age and has a handy dictionary! ha, I had to check more than a few words during the course of this book, and I thought that gave a certain grown up quality to a children's fairy tale. This is a short story, less than 100 pages, yet the characters have depth, if limited, and is steeped in maigic, that probably would have been more fun if explored further than what it was in this book. Overall this is a nice, light and short read that was very lovely, made all the more so with the illustrations around each page that basically fit in with the plot. Check it out.

About the only thing I liked about the book was that it was visually pleasing. Huh, what a thing to say! It's about the size of a CD case, irregular for a book, and it has the most beautiful cover artwork... but about the book! The story wasn't up to snuff, and I'd say the same thing about any other book of the same caliber, I don't care who wrote it. The plot wasn't particularly exciting, and the romance (could it be called that?), well, it fizzled. The characters weren't very endearing (the main girl character, Meanne, seemed like such a wilted flower. I kept wishing she'd just grow some SPINE!) and although there was magic involved, it wasn't enough to keep me interested for long. I think I'll just stick with reading the Pern books; they're longer and I actually liked the characters.

I must admit that I had high expectations for this book after reading the Dragonriders and Harpers series. This was a very cute book but by no means superb. I find the price exorbitant for such a little book, and it would be much better to get it through the library system. All things told, it kept me interested for a couple of hours.

not like most of her books but this book is a good quick read without losing any of the Anne McCaffrey magic we know and love.
