One of my favorite books of all time and one of my favorite Czerneda books.I also love A Thousand Words for Stranger.This was a very character driven novel and I think this was the first time I was really aware of a character driven story vs. a plot driven story.I loved the characters in this book.(I read it years ago and so I don't remember anyone's name.) What happens to people when they are offered an entire universe to settle, and then are forced to live on space stations due to an alien lifeform that kills off humans on other planets.Earth is afraid to let them come back, space station life is forced communal life and there isn't enough of anything to keep everyone satisfied.Then along comes someone who thinks she might have the answer. Someone whose parents were responsible for the deaths of thousands (millions?) of colonists. But she can't do it alone.It also some incredibly beautiful prose.
