Description
(A 2010 Mildred L. Batchelder Honor Book) In this timeless tale for readers 8 to 12—a follow-up to The Crow-Girl, itself a Batchelder Honor Book as well as an ALA Notable Book and a School Library Journal Best Book of 2005—some years have passed since young Myna set off on a journey, met Eidi and her mother Foula, and founded a tiny community near a sea cove. But now that Foula has remarried and had another baby, Eidi feels there's no longer room for her in the settlement, and she leaves Crow Cove to make her own way in the world. Danish author Bodil Bredsdorff tells this timeless story in the same spare, fast-moving style of The Crow-Girl, though Eidi's adventure stands on its own.

"Eidi feels uncertain of her place in the household. She travels with a kindly neighbor, Rossan, to the city, where she finds a needy orphan, a young boy named Tink, cruelly mistreated by his stepfather. Eidi gradually grows to understand her own desires, abilities, and power as she nurtures Tink and fights for his survival and her own.... The author brings to life a simply functioning world similar to that found in fairy tales—a place that is both specific and universal. Lyrically told, the narrative provides apt descriptions of events and of the natural world. Readers easily decode the motivations and inner thoughts revealed in the actions and words of the characters who are vividly and quickly delineated but possess lively complexities. An excellent follow-up for fans of the first book."—School Library Journal
