400 years have passed since a dying Earth sends out it's people in great asteroid ships towards the stars and 5 preselected planets. Over the course of the 400 year journey, a complex society with a caste system has emerged. The fleet is approaching it's first world. You're drawn in as the story unfolds. This is a book that can be devoured in a couple of hours. Susan R. Matthews writes with such ease, reading her books are a pleasure. This is one of those books that after you read it, you say to yourself "I could have written this book!" But, of course, you didn't and couldn't and that's the beauty of her simple, straight-forward writing style. If you have not read it already, run out and get "An Exchange of Hostages" also by Susan R. Matthews. Arguably one of the best books written and should belong on your bookshelf.
