Epithalamium by Wild Iris

'"But water is always different," Therru says. "My father told me that. Every wave that rolls in to Gont Port once broke upon the rocks of SolÉa when it was new."' Wild Iris achieves a delicate balance here between Therru & Tehanu, the girl firmly rooted in the prosaic Gontish life & the embodiment of the mysterious Other. The writing has a lovely sense of mystery and poetry
