Wend your way through cobbled village streets to the enchanted moor with Virginia Leishman. Find a comfortable spot to linger in the emerald grass. Now give ear to the captivating story of Saaski, the dark-skinned, flaxen-haired village child, raised to the cusp of adolescence amidst common feelings that something is amiss with her, as, indeed, something proves to be. In melodic British tones, Leishman will charm you with the tale of the changeling, the half-folk child of the Moorfolk, traded for a human baby and banished from the Mound. Leishman will fill the air with the voices of the villagers, occasionally amiable, more often acrimonious, as they swirl about Saaski's cottage. Saaski's own voice, musical and sweet, will fill you with her longing to discover the means to accept all that is different within her, the one desire we all share, especially in childhood. This telling is a triumph! T.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE's Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
