A Gift from the Stars
by Linda Banche
One night, as Elizabeth observes the Great Comet of 1811, a sky craft lands and a man emerges from inside. When he leaves, he drops a small stone, which Elizabeth wears as a pendant. Her cold disappears and she feels good. So does everyone else who nears the stone, including the injured Jon. His recovery speeds up when he meets Elizabeth. Is the cause his attraction to her? Or something else?
