"When a group of settlers from Earth lan on the beautiful planet of Isis they arrive to a world completely unpeopled except by Olwen, Keeper of the Isis Light, and her protector, Guardian. Olwen is nervous about what the newcomers will think of her and frustrated when Guardian insists that she put on a germ-free suit before she descends to the valley where they are camped. Down there Mark London quickly befriends the masked Olwen and she learns how much pleasure there is in human friendship, though there are also bitter disappointments. She is ultimately to find out that she and this alien planet are uniquely linked." - from the introductory preamble. Very good. Signed without inscription by the author on the title page. 15.00
