Recommended by Laurel-Leaf in The Turning Place: Stories of a Future Past.

But since the blurb refers to "two men and a girl" and yet implies the characters are of similar age, it may be problematic.

This was a good story, but not a great one. Three people with special psi powers escape a damaged spaceship in a pod and land on an agricultural, backwards planet. These folks don't even know that there has been a war on for 18 years!

I read this as a youth and remember it being quite enjoyable, from a 13 year old's point of view. I intend to reread it when I can find it.
