This novella, set in McCaffrey’s epic world of Pern, is stylistically more like a Regency romance than a science-fiction short story. McCaffrey provides an prologue which explains the setting and historical background of the story, but it is more confusing than explanatory, and readers would do well to skip to the story itself.

Nerilka is one of the many daughters of the Lord of Fort Hold, and as a plain, hard-working girl, harbors no romantic thoughts of a lavish marriage and escape from Fort Hold. She spends most of her time gathering and preparing medicinal plants for the healers. Her parents and four sisters are visiting another Hold when a disease and quarantine strikes Pern. Nerilka’s father, in defiance of the quarantine, leaves his dying wife and daughters to return home to Fort Hold, where upon hearing of their death, installs his mistress, Anella, and her extended family in the Fort. Nerilka, appalled at his actions and his refusal to send supplies from their overflowing stockroom to those in need, disguises herself and takes medical supplies to those in need, eventually coming to Ruatha Hold, where she becomes a valued member of the Healers.

Published in the mid 1980′s, the black and white illustrations are rather laughable. I remembered this book as being a charming little story, but upon re-reading, found that it has not aged well — which is funny, seeing that it is science fiction set in the distant future. Perhaps it is best read after consuming several of McCaffrey’s Pern novels and getting in to the proper mindset. ( )

I did like it okay, and it was so short one could hardly complain. Still, it is just Moreta from another point of view, which seems a bit like cheating to me. ( )

There are so many books about Pern that I have never read all of them and this is one that escaped my notice until now. It is set in the time period when a deadly plague swept through Pern and killed people, dragons and other beasts. Quite a few of both Anne and her son Todd's books have dealt with aspects of this time but it is good to get another view of it.

Nerilka is one of the many daughters of Lord Holder Holocamp of the Fort Hold. While her parents and three of her sisters go off to a Gathering at Ruatha Hold Nerilka is made to stay home. The plague strikes the people at the Gathering and Nerilka's mother and her sisters die. Her father, breaking the quarantine, flies home but sequesters himself in his room issuing orders to Nerilka and her brother Campen. One of his orders is to stop giving medicines to the Healers even though they have ample in their stores. Nerilka, already upset that Holocamp has brought his mistress into the hold, decides to leave and go to the nearby internment camp to help the sick. She is not afraid that she will get sick herself since she was one of the people who got immunized by the vaccine made from people and beasts who had survived the plague. When the internment camp is opened up Nerilka goes off with supplies for other habitations. She ends up in Ruatha where she helps with mass production of the vaccine but she has disguised her identity so she will not be known as a lady. The Lord Holder of Ruatha, Alessan, was married to her best friend Suriana but she died before the plague in a riding accident. It is time for Alessan to marry again and sire children to carry on but he is so depressed by the events, including the death of Moreta whom he loved, that he just wants to die. Nerilka convinces him to live at least long enough to sire children and he agrees marrying her. ( )

This was a really quick read but very enjoyable, just like all of Anne McCaffrey's other Pern books. ( )
