Talk about another social commentary on our policies and life. Ms. Tepper brings to light groups ahead of news media. Her what-if scenarios are scary accurate and her resolutions to them unbelievably simplistic. It makes me wonder if they could work.

In Fresco, Benita is a nobody who suddenly becomes an important somebody with peace loving aliens come and change the world as we know it.

Everything seems to be perfect until the religion and way of life for the aliens, Pistach, is shaken to the core when it is revealed that their origins are not what they thought. Learning that their history was different than there teachings threaten to rip the society apart.

I loved this story as it dealt with right to life, abuse of women in Muslim countries and the Taliban. It is a book ahead of its time. Still, the biggest morale less for me is, the winners write history however they want it to be. In this book, it is no exception.
