'A long day without water' is a tragic but tender story about a village which persecuted the one man who wouldn't sell out to a mining company, and the consequences which followed his death as the failing mine venture swallowed up the village river.
'A harp of fishbones' is a beautiful tale about the redemption of a city by a girl who plays a harp made without the gold which had been the city's curse.
'Hope', and 'the Dark Streets of Kimball's Green' are both tales of rebeginning. For a change of pace, 'the Prince of Darkness' is a delightfully witty story that pokes fun in all the right places without becoming silly or coarse.
Ultimately Joan Aiken is a minor figure in children's writing, and none of these stories really compare with Phillippa Pearce, Elisabeth Beresford or Alison Utley. But if you can avoid making comparisons, they are a good read and lose little of their lustre with age.
