Marriage has not changed Han and Leia much - they still bicker and banter with each other, but now they have something new to disagree on: whether to have children. Han wouldn't mind being a father, but Leia is terrified that whatever turned her own father into Darth Vader might be genetic, and she can't risk giving birth to a monster. I n an attempt to put the past to rest, the newlywed couple go to Tatooine, where they speak with the people who knew Leia's grandmother, Shmi Skywalker.
And Leia gets a gift: Shmi's diary, in which she recorded all her hopes and dreams for her beloved son, Anakin. While Han and Leia get caught up in an ever-escalating adventure on Tatooine, Leia reads her grandmother's diary and learns something of her heritage, something that will change her forever-.
Set about eight years after Star Wars: A New Hope, this new adventure in the saga carries on the high pace action and tongue-in-cheek humour between Han & Leia that has become a trade mark from the movies.
With the Empire on their tails constantly, Leia and Han Solo, newly married and disagreeing just as much as ever, travel to Tatooine on a mission for the rebellion.
Along the way they run into the past, in the form of a video diary kept by Leia's grandmother, Shmi Skywalker. From the entries Leia begins to see that her father, Anakin, wasn't always the horror she knew as Darth Vader.
I don't really wanna go too deeply into the story, but this is definitely one that had me tired-eyed and wanting to keep reading to the end of the next chapter.
