This book had potential but it was bogged down by excess verbosity and side plots. Things did not start to get interesting until the end, when the young man goes to investigate the location of the political prisoners. There needed to be much more editing- show, don't tell; avoid jargons and cliches; and draw the reader in from page one. Show them why the society depicted in the book is relevant to today's society in the issues that people face and the larger life questions that must be resolved.

I haven't read much by Juanita Coulson, but when I see her name I have two reactions ... first, that she was one of the early authors for the LaserBooks series in the 1970's, and that I met her and Buck at a convention in Minneapolis many, MANY years ago.

Reading this book brings to mind another thought ... science fiction writing has changed over the past four decades.

Jael Saunder was trying to keep a giant global company afloat, but her children had their own goals. This story is about the family conflicts and contact with aliens.
