Some questions stretch across millennia. When off-planet developers offer Ana a fortune for her kemfarm, she must decide whether to trade a life luxury for her family for the kem she has fed, sheltered, sheared, and nurtured all her life. Can her good fortune be worth the misery the kem will face? As the deadline for a decision nears, Ana finds the answer from a surprising source.
Running a kemfarm is hard work especially during shearing and lambing seasons, but Ana has never yearned for anything more. Until some off-planet developers start buying up all the land in the area. When they visit Ana dressed in their elegant clothes, talking about all the cultural opportunities that life in a richer place can offer, they make Ana feel very small-planet indeed. And there’s nothing small about the money they offer her for the farm. But what about the kem? Her good fortune will lead to their misery. When the answer comes from a surprising source, Ana realizes that some questions stretch across millennia and inspire astonishing works.
