on June 20, 2011 :
After a nuclear war that destroys most of their civilization, the planet of Ahran organized itself around a religion that turned its faith to the stars and interpreted natural electromagnetic noise from space as messages from their creator. All this so they could have peace and survive, and it worked well for some time. Jara faces an unthinkable dilemma when she cannot figure out how to translate the messages she receives during the course of her job and make the translation suit the enforced religion. Is she a failure? Unfaithful? Deserving of punishment?
Jara is torn between seeking the truth or remaining faithful to what she is told she must believe, even if she must lie. And the survival of the refugee visitor from planet Earth depends or her actions. Tom Wilson is alone on his spaceship and he has recently awoken from cold sleep. In his confusion and his attempts to land on an alien planet where he might have hopes of survival, he accidentally transmits his diary entries to the alien planet, and to Jara.
This reader found the story engaging and hurried to keep reading to learn how the conflicts would be resolved. It did seem that the ending was too abrupt and there should have been a little more story surrounding the final scene. But it still is an enjoyable read, and the author does indicate there are more books.
