Since I read this book out of sequence, it took me a long time to get into it. I only continued because it was written by one of my favourite authors and part of one of my favourite series. It was well worth the effort. This well-written book charts the beginning of an organisation for the talents. It shows the problems, and successes, of a group of people who began the organisation. It asks the question- how do we treat those who are different and how do we treat those with unique talents. It is well worth a read.
