Written in 1967, Restoree is Anne McCaffrey's first full-length novel.  Sara starts out as a mousy librarian and soon finds herself as nurse to a strange man on a strange planet.

Her political expertise and technological savvy make this one of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels.

I read the book as a teen, and just completed my first re-read in several years.   Amazing how my perspective has changed.  :-)  The element of discovery and Ms. McCaffrey's flowing wording are what keeps the plot fresh.

This is one book that I'd love to see made into a movie.  We now have the technology to make it beautiful.
