Summary
When their homeworld is destroyed, the survivors of an alien society, the Sadiri, settle among the human inhabitants of Cygnus Beta. Unfortunately for the Sadiri, all the refugees are male, meaning that their race will soon become extinct unless they reach out to their new neighbors. As the Sadiri struggle with the necessity of preserving their culture by altering it forever, the bio-technicians of Cygnus Beta work to locate genetically compatible populations with whom the Sadiri can integrate and reproduce. Then scientist Grace Delarua forms an unexpected bond with designated Sadiri representative Councilor Dllenahkh -- a relationship that complicates an already difficult project. This lyrical, leisurely and highly atmospheric novel explores how two very different cultures try to connect. - Description by Gillian Speace
