The Eyes of the Amaryllis

Natalie Babbitt. Sunburst Books, $5.95 (127pp) ISBN 978-0-374-42238-7

The ship Amaryllis sinks in a hurricane, but for 30 years the captain's widow waits for him to send her a message from the bottom of the sea. Her granddaughter waits with her, and ""the author reminds us that the line between reality and imagination is undefinable. Babbitt rings the bell again,'' PW said. (8up)
