_Nimisha's Ship_ is a new McCaffrey book set in the same world as _The Coelura_. Although I thought it was all right, _The Coelura_ didn't fascinate me and make me want to read it over and over again, as most of her other books do. So I wasn't sure whether this book would be all that good. However, Anne McCaffrey has done it again, and _Nimisha's Ship_ is as good as it promised to be when I first picked it up in the bookstore. Luckily, because she's so popular, my library gets her books as soon as they come out, and I didn't have to wait for the paperback version. The story follows a woman (Nimisha) from her birth to her eventual success in a job not generally considered appropriate for someone of her standing. the characterization is, as always in her books, wonderful, and they seem to come alive on the page. I would reccomend this book to anyone who has enjoyed previous works by, in my opinion, one of the best writers in the field, Anne McCaffrey.
