Heartfire Summary

Heartfire: Tales of Alvin Maker: Book 5 by Orson Scott Card

'Card is one of the most important writers in the field.' - Ben Bova

;The most important work of American fantasy since Stephen Donaldson's original Thomas Covenant trilogy.' - Chicago Suntimes

Peggy is a Torch, able to see the fire burning in each person's heart. She can follow the paths of each person's future, and know each person's most intimate secrets. From the moment of Alvin Maker's birth, when the Unmaker first strove to kill him, she has protected him.

Now they are married, and Peggy is a part of Alvin's heart as well as his life. But Alvin's destiny has taken them on separate journeys. Alvin has gone north into New England, where knacks are considered witchcraft, and their use is punished by death. Peggy has been drawn south, to the British Crown Colonies and the court of King Arthur Stuart in exile. For she has seen a terrible future bloom in the heartfires of every person in America, a future of war and destruction.

One slender path exists that leads through the bloodshed, and it is Peggy's quest to set the world on that path to peace.

Hugo and Nebula-award winner Orson Scott Card demonstrates again that he belongs in the company of such older masters of science fiction as Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert and Ursula K. Le Guin. -- MAGILL BOOK REVIEWS
The best writer science fiction has to offer. -- THE HOUSTON POST
The most important work of American fantasy since Stephen Donaldson's original Thomas Covenant trilogy. * CHICAGO SUNTIMES *
