Now that you mention it, I can see that too, Brenda. She must have decided to explore those ideas more fully. Though a little of this carried over to the Ky Vatta series too.

One of the most heartbreaking parts of the series is when Sass is carrying her sister Lunzie's body and doesn't even realize it till the end.

Oh, definitely. It's making me cry. Love the golden fliers too.
Forgot to mention, another of my favorite moments is when Sass and Lunzie first meet.
