Summary
"Generations after leaving earth, a starship draws near to the planet that may serve as a new home world for those on board. But the journey has brought unexpected changes and their best laid plans may not be enough to survive"--
Summary
The starship is headed for Tau Ceti, approximately 12 light years away. Launched from Earth in the 26th century, the vessel is nearing its destination after nearly 160 years. Charged with creating a comprehensive narrative of the voyage by chief engineer Devi, the ship's AI narrates this moving, thought-provoking novel, seamlessly blending the technical aspects of the spacecraft with the more personal stories of its passengers -- particularly Devi's daughter, Freya, who's expected to succeed her mother as chief engineer just as they reach their new home. -- Description by Gillian Speace
