A novelette -- a book for a plus sale market. An effective piece of work, quiet, simple, poetic. Ellen at the Inn at Tintagel, Cornwall, finds her life dominated by the old legends which surround her, in particular the haunting legend of Tristram and Isolde. Her one regret is her inability to share her perception and new found appreciation with her sweetheart, and when eventually she gets her wish, it is through a method of fulfillment that heals while it wounds. Exquisitely handled -- a book for keenly perceptive and discriminating readers."" This is the sort of book the appreciative bookman can sell on personal recommendation.
