Patricia McKillip has written better books than this one. More complex, more thought-provoking. However, The Bell at Sealey Head is charming, and I very much enjoyed reading it. The romance is more central than in her other novels, and it is very sweet and convincing. I also enjoyed finding pieces of her other books in this one, which makes sense because in a lot of ways The Bell at Sealey Head is a book about the love of books. I can definitely sympathize with that.

If nothing else, it's worth reading for the way McKillip writes. But if you know anything about her, you must know that.
