Format: Hardcover
Readers who love Zenna Henderson's Pigrimage will want to read this, her second novel about the People, a race from another planet who become marooned on earth. The People have the very best of human qualities: love, gentleness, spirituality; and also special powers of healing, levitation and other abilites.
This book tells the story of a couple, Mark and Meris, who, one stormy night, find a young girl who has fallen in a capsule from the sky, and who has special abilities. Maris and Mark, still grieving the loss of their own baby, must come to terms with the emotional issues that caring for the young girl, Lala, creates in both of them. What follows is a plot that will involve the reader in the magic, compassion and sense of rightness that the People evoke.
In Pilgrimage, as in The People: No Different Flesh, the plot shifts between the present day story, and stories about the People from their past, which comprise the People's race memory. Included as one of these memories told to Mark and Meris is a short story, "Deluge", which has appeared in some short story collections. "Deluge" gives the reader a taste of the magical and deeply fulfilling way of life on the People's home planet and tells how the People came to leave it. Other memories tell us what happened to various individuals of the People as they arrived on earth. These add texture and interest to the present-day story, and include events of terrible persecution of the People as well as stories of personal tragedy and joy.
Some critics have found Zenna Henderson and her People books too emotionally melodramatic, and indeed, Henderson does have the talent for making vivid emotion come alive on the page.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Stephen R. Finney VINE VOICE on July 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
Though it has been a good number of years since I last read "The People: No Different Flesh", and it's accompanying story: "Pilgrimage", I find myself looking for a Hardbound copy, and a Kindle version as well. Zenna Henderson is near the pinnacle (if not at the pinnacle) of fantasy authors. her books will draw you in, allowing you escape from the harsh realities of the world around you. Pure, mesmerizing escape is what you get, told in a unique and mellow way. I won't go into specifics; you'll just have to take my word that if you like good fantasy without excessive violence, any of the storys about "The People" will satisfy you well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently bought two copies of this book so that I could share with my adult daughter one of her father's favorite stories.

The People look just like normal Americans, but have paranormal abilities such as telepathy and the ability to fly. ,They came here from outer space and had no wish to hide what they were, but soon learned that normals could not handle a group that was so different. That is something most of us can relate to, for we have different ability sets and that means most of us are above average at something--and persecuted for it.

This is a novel, very satisfying to read.
