This entry in the Pern series fills in the backstory of Moreta's famous ride (the one that inspired Menolly's moving ballad.

A promising love story between Moreta and Lord Alessan gets interrupted by a mysterious viral epidemic that quickly decimates Pern's population. Moreta, a healer and dragonrider, is a driving force in the efforts to stop the spread of the disease. Her courage is admirable (and the stuff of ballads), but when she drives herself and a borrowed dragon too far, tragedy ensues.
