Read full description of the books The Bell at Sealey Head:Dream a little dream of a little book, perfect in every way; a story about a little village on the seacoast, less than perfect but full of charm, a lived-in village with charming, lived-in characters; a village with a mysterious crumbling manor with many doors to another world: a world of rituals and ravenous crows and glassy-eyed knights and a trapped princess and an uncertain doom; the world of a castle, a castle in a book.
Dream a dream of spells, two wizards and a wood witch and her daughter, and a strange bell that tolls from nowhere each night; dream a dream of a little romance, sweet and pure.
A book about books, about the wonder of reading, about readers and their voyages and writers and their trials and victories. A book that loves books. The theme: the power of stories. A motif: what are the eyes saying, what sort of house exists behind those windows, look to the eyes. The prose: refined, delicate and lovely. The feel: wispy and evanescent. The result: it was like a nap in the park on a sunny, breezy day, a nap full of little dreams, all these little connected dreams within one enchanting dream. I imagine I was smiling throughout this happy dream; I woke from it still smiling.

McKillip's stories usually take place in a setting similar to the Middle Ages. There are forests, castles, and lords or kings, minstrels, tinkers and wizards. Her writing usually puts her characters in situations involving mysterious powers that they don't understand. Many of her characters aren't even sure of their own ancestry. Music often plays an important role. Love between family members is also important in McKillip's writing, although members of her families often disagree.
