This novel stirs the heart with its bittersweet tale of a changeling girl, unwanted by either the Fair folk or the human world. Rejected by the fey, so casually indifferent to a small child that they willingly consign it to human care, Moql becomes Saaski and finds that human beings are both worse and better than the Moorfolk.

The story is moving, unsparing of either cruelty or kindness. It ably catches the rhythms of mundane human work and the feckless, carefree prances of the Little People and twines them together in a song as haunting and indefinable as that which Saaski coaxes from her bagpipes.
