I enjoyed this book, which is much more about character and writing than it is about action. There were touches that bothered me (why does this need to be in an age where there is cold fusion?) but for the most part, I read it eagerly, if at a leisurely pace. I wouldn't say it would be a good travel book--it's not engrossing that way. But for a few pages before bed, unlikely to keep you awake, I'd recommend it.

A truly trivial point: Both library journal and the book jacket have it wrong, I think. Ursula is not a step-mother. Someone here (it could be me?) didn't read carefully enough.
