Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey

Posted by: heather

I have read this book more often than I can count. It is my favorite of Anne McCaffrey's Harper Hall trilogy, and it remains as fantastic today as it was when I first read it. "Dragonsinger" is the continuation of Menolly's story -- she is a gifted female musician in a world where it is frowned upon for girls to do such a thing. At the opening of "Dragonsinger," Menolly finds herself at the doorstep of the Harper Hall (Pern's equivalent of an elite music school) after having been tapped by the Masterharper himself -- who is trying to change the 'old ways' for the better.
What remains the biggest draw to this book for me is how Menolly's story mirrors my own: growing up, I was always the odd one out. Like Menolly, I wanted to write songs and stories -- but faced obstacles in my pursuit. Watching Menolly grow into herself, watching her come to terms, and ultimately, find her very own niche gave me hope that someday, I would find my own as well.

Thank you, Menolly (and Ms. McCaffrey), for giving me the courage to follow my own dreams.
