Jacquelyne asked:

This book haunted me, and through this site and Brian's review it is partially resolved now....until I get The Silver Crown in hand. But I need some help from fellow readers in tracking down a book from that time period - a British book about a girl, stars with a celestial force/virus, rabbits and humans being infected and changing? Does anyone recognize this book?

Maeve This site will help you. It helped me with a couple of similar questions. http://www.loganberrybooks.com/stumpt...

"What's the Name of That Book?!" https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/...

(It's definitely NOT Watership Down or Astercote). ;)
STACEY SMALLWOOD Is it Watership Down?
Jacquelyne I'm afraid that it's not Astercote by Penelope Lively. But thank you so much for the suggestion. I read the book in the American Library in Munich as a kid in the late 70's. Now, I remember that it had the stars falling or streaming down...
It drive me nuts again when they had the falling stars in King's Under the Dome.
Readymade OK, I officially hate you. Your description of this unknown book really resonated with me. I know I read it in my youth, but I can't remember any further details about it. It's gonna drive me crazy.
SmokingMirror Could it be Astercote by Penelope Lively? I'm not sure; I have a vague memory of it, also.
