Publisher's Summary

Menolly needs more than music's power in the second book in the Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey's beloved and best-selling Dragonriders of Pern series.

Pursuing her dream to be a Harper of Pern, Menolly studies under the Masterharper and quickly learns that more is required than knowledge of music and a clever way with words. The Masterharper gives her a difficult time simply because she is a young woman, and she manages to alienate more of her fellow harpers than she makes friends. Menolly must rise up and prove that a woman is just as capable as any of her male fellow students - and if she can, she will shape the future of Pern.

Not happy

This is an abridged version. I know the book well and was very disappointed to find several passages abruptly shortened. And Adrienne Barbeau may be a fine actress but she's a terrible narrator.
