Yvonne | 8 comments Read a series at least 6 years ago. A group of friends scientist go on an expedition to another planet after intercepting a song. There's a 20+ year travel time. I remember there's a minister, a older childless couple, and another guy who is really tall. The first beings they meet are furry with tails, they are able to live with and communicate with them for a while teaching them how to better grow their harvest.

Eventually another being come to the colony/village and all hell breaks loose.

There is a second book of a new crew that followed and rescue the first crew.

I don't know the name, and I want to add it to my read list.

Thanks.

I'm moving this thread to the Unsolved folder, since that is where the seekers and curious look.

Definitely The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. I highly recommend it. Sections of it are lyrical and other sections are how horrifying lack of cultural understanding can be.
