I'd read the second book, The people: no different flesh, and liked it so much that I went hunting for this one and was delighted to have found it. Since it is science fiction, a reader has to be open-minded and accepting of the premises, but it isn't one of those "battle the aliens" type of thing. It isn't fast-paced adventure, but it's very interesting and makes me envious of the talents of the people who had to leave their planet and take a chance on finding another inhabitable one. Just writing this and thinking about the people i n those books makes me want to read them again!

Henderson's People stories are always delightful, thoughtful and inspiring about the ultimate good found in mankind.

In the 1960's "Shadow on the Moon" stole my heart, and I read all the Zenna Henderson I could lay my hands on. I bought this and No Different Flesh to introduce my neice when she's the right age. I guess I took the Golden Age writers for granted back then, but today I wish I owned every one I ever read.

This is a true SF classic and Ms Henderson's best work. If you read it, you will find yourself caught up in the world that she created. It is the first book in a series about a transport ship full of people with assorted paranormal talents is stranded on our planet and the people have to learn how to live with us, without our knowing and still remain themselves. There are no ravening aliens that need to eat our livers or kidnap our women to reproduce. It is not "Space Opera." In fact, non-SF readers will probably enjoy it very much, too. One warning: Enjoy this book and the first couple of sequels, but no more. It begins to wear as do all series, although there are probably quite a few people for whom this is not true. If you have not read it, you are not really a fan of SF.
