WARNING: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! I remember one of my elementary or middle school teachers reading this book to us over many afternoons. I received a used copy of this book for Christmas and it has the same cover as the one I remember which really takes me back. I thought it was a fantastic book then and I still concur – The Keeper Of The Isis Light is a gorgeous sci-fi story from 1980 about teenagers and being an alien among your own people. I have to admit I was a little disappointed, or at least surprised, that Mark and Olwen weren’t able to overcome their differences. But the unexpected ending looks like it leads to two more books, The Guardian of Isis and The Isis Pedlar. One question I had was: Why didn’t Olwen notice that her skin was a different colour than the settlers?
