Voices
Ursula K. Le Guin
Ansul, once a beautiful, peaceful city of traders and scholars, was conquered seventeen years ago by the Alds—men of the desert who believe reading and writing to be evil acts, punishable by death. They also believe the Oracle House, where the last few undestroyed books are hidden, is seething with demons. But to seventeen-year-old Memer, the house is a blessed refuge, a place of family and learning, ritual and memory—the only place where she feels truly safe.

Then one day a poet named Orrec and his wife Gry arrive, and everything in Memer’s life begins to change. Will she, her family, and the people of Ansul find the power and the courage to rebel against their oppressors?

The second book of the Annals of the Western Shore, Voices is a haunting and gripping coming-of-age story set against a backdrop of violence, intolerance and magic.
