----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Very Good+ dustjacket, small red line on upper edge of textblock, a bit of sunning to the spine, ---"This is the story of a journey beyond death. When Margaret Redmond, a young Toronto woman, sickens and then dies she is glad to leave a brief and lonely life that has been ruined by her deep love-hatred for her uncle. But death is only a beginning for Margaret: it proves to be the gateway to a search for a secret buried deep in her forgotten past. In the course of her quest she encounters Elizabeth, a sea-captain's wife in sixteenth century England; Zawumatec, a slave in the long houses of the Iroquois; Phoenix, a Chinese lady of the Tang dynasty; and Tirigan, a warrior prince in ancient Sumer. Through these encounters Margaret gradually learns the true source of her hatred for her uncle - a hatred almost as old as civilization. This astonishing novel represents fantasy at its best, and seems bound to widen the audience for Ruth Nichols' books to inclue all those who admire Tolkien or Cabell, or the other great fantasists.", any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
