The book is in very good condition (Clean quarter bound in grey cloth over green boards and silver lettering on spine which has only minor fading along the edges), with minor wear to the illustrated dust jacket which is not price clipped (light creasing to the edges and slight tanning inside the jacket). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Anne McCaffrey was one of science fiction's most beloved writers. Her first publication was a short story in Science Fiction Magazine, and her first novel, Restoree, was published in 1967. She was the multi-award winning bestselling author of more than hundred books, including the Dragonriders of Pern series, the Freedom series, the Tower and the Hive series, the Crystal Singer series, Acorna's Children series, The Twins of Petaybee series, and Barque Cats series.

In 1999 she received the Margaret A. Edwards Award, given by the American Library Association, for lifetime achievement. She has won numerous other awards including the Hugo Award for Best Novella for the short story Weyr Search in 1968 and the Nebula Award for Best Novella for Dragonrider in 1969. In 2006, she was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. She has also written books under the pseudonym Jody Lynn. She died in 2011 at the age of 85.

The Rowan is the first book in the Tower and the Hive series and followed by Damia (1991), Damia's Children (1993), Lyon's Pride (1994), and The Tower and the Hive (1999).

"The colonies on Altair were frontier settlements whose raw materials fed the factories of Earth. It was no surprise after torrential rains thundered across altair that the small Rowan Mining camp was totally destroyed in a mudslide. What was surprising was the psychic wail of agony that went up, so loud and clear that it pierced the mind of every halfway sensitive telepath on the planet - and more surprising still, the discovery that this strong new psychic voice belonged to a three- year-old child, the lone survivor of the disaster.

They named her 'the Rowan,' not knowing any more about her than that, and she grew into a a beautiful, magical-looking woman. She was also the most important Talent on the planet, using her enormous mental powers to help move cargo loads to all of the other inhabited worlds.

But it was a lonely life - an especially lonely life for a lovely woman who had been deprived of her childhood. The men who loved her were beneath her, and she loved no one - until Jeff Raven entered her life. His voice appeared in her mind one day: the strong call of a fellow telepath in distress. Jeff was a wild Talent, his latent abilities called forth by an alien attack that threatened to destroy his planet. With the Rowan's help, he drove back the invaders; now he wants only to find out more about the strong and fascinating woman who helped save his world.

Their tumultuous love affair means the end of loneliness for the Rowan, and the union of their Talents makes them the most powerful team in all the inhabited worlds - ready for the challenges they expect may await them, as the rest of the universe begins to notice the expansion of the human settlements in space."

335 pages.
