Default Re: The Ship Who/That Returned

Almaron....you should give it a read, with all the other parts of *Helva*.

I love this story...it puts a lovely ending to the original *Ship Who Sang* story...but if you cry when reading Anne's stories, have a box of tissues handy, as this one is a wonderfully good cry.

I just wish that one of Anne's publishers would put all of the *Helva* stories in one book...together finally. Every time I want to read them all, I have to go and get out the other books that have the shorts in them.

I have to admit I'm just overwhelminly happy that after all these years she added to the original story and gave us such a wonderful finish to it.
