The universe can be an infinitely cruel and difficult place for a people who have lost their planet. Anthropologist and gifted linguist Grace Delarua is assigned to help the desperate yet proud refugees of Sadira find a new home on her planet of Cygnus Beta. She soon finds she may be the only go-between with the intelligence and empathy to rescue a unique race from extinction. Reminiscent of Ursula LeGuin’s best work, this is a welcome old-school science-fiction tale that examines cultural dynamics, genetics, and individual isolation. Award-winning voice talent Robin Miles inhabits Grace’s first-person narrative with realistic candor, vulnerability, and humor. It’s the voice of a woman who can’t help but take her job, and the loss and longing of an entire world, very personally. B.P. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
