The eagerly-awaited sequel to The Heritage of Hastur and Sharra's Exile. Margaret Alton, daughter of the Darkovan representative to the Terran Imperial Senate, remembers almost nothing about the planet of her birth or her tumultuous childhood. What fleeting memories she has are fragments of terror -- a strange silver man and a screaming woman with hair that circled her head like a ring of fire. Now her work has taken Margaret back to Darkover, where she must fight against inner voices that are trying to control her as she unravels the secrets of her heritage -- and her destiny. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Library Journal
Musicologist Margaret Alton and her mentor Ivor Davidson travel to Darkover, the planet of her birth, to collect folk songs. When Ivor dies suddenly, Margaret finds family she has never known and suffers a painful illness that awakens latent mental powers. During this journey of self-discovery, she fights for her autonomy but is drawn to remain on Darkover as a member of a powerful family. This intricate, lyrically written novel is essential for sf collections.

This is a good beginning of the story of Marguerida Alton, who was born on Darkover, but taken away when she was quite young. In the back story, she grew up on another planet, and lead a fairly normal life, until the university she attends sent her to Darkover to collect folk songs.
That's where the book starts.
She finds Darkover both familiar and strange. That's not surprising. What is surprising is that everyone she meets there treats her as nobility. Even more surprising, she turns out to be an heiress, and she's not so sure she actually likes that, because her inheritance comes with responsibilities and restrictions.
This a great book and the start of a great series that features very real people in stressful situations. It's one of my favorites, but so is anything Marion wrote about Darkover.
