    The Earth colony of Landin has been stranded on Werel for 10 years. Ten of Werel's years are over 600 terrestrial years, and the lonely and dwindling human settlement is beginning to feel the strain. Every winter, a season that lasts for 15 years, the Earthmen have neighbors, the humanoid hilfs: a nomadic people who only settle down for the cruel cold spell. The hilfs fear the Earthmen, who they think of as witches and call the farborns.

    Katherine says: "Not the best place to start with Le Guin"
    "Rolery, oh Rolery"

    Story

    I've read this book many, many times since it's publication in 1966 (telling my age), and I've listened to it quite often on Audible. I've tried and tried, but Ms MacDuffie's narration just doesn't match Rolery's character; I couldn't see her at all. Mr. Hoye's Agat was okay but took a couple of listenings to see him.
