Included in this volume is "Veil of the Dancer," in which a scholar with three daughters properly marries off the two eldest, while teaching the youngest, Inas, how to read -- and thereby endangering them all.
Also included is "Quiet Knives," which finds Captain Rolanni with time on her hands -- time to fulfill a promise she made years ago to a man who may no longer be a friend.
"Put plainly and simply, I like the Liaden books. . .for a whole slew of reasons. In the end, however, the reasons don't matter. What matters is that more people should be reading what Sharon Lee and Steve Miller have written." -- L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of Legacies
"Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are so good, it's scary." -- S.L. Viehl, author of the Stardoc series
