Star Wars: Tatooine Ghost Paperback
by Troy Denning
Part of the Star Wars series
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.
In 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.

Review by TheoClarke
It is becoming clear to me that I am not part of the intended audience of the Star Wars Extended Universe. This episode is set immediately after Leia's wedding to Han Solo but there is no convincing emotional bond between the newlyweds. It may appeal to someone who cares about Leia's grandmother, Shmi, the progentitor of the Skywalker line whose story is expanded here.
