I liked this science fiction book about discovery and relationships. I noticed that although there were spaceships and colonization of other worlds, the communication problems resembled pre-telegraph days.

Robinette Broadhead made rich by the
gateway mission that had cost him the woman he loved, joined in back rolling an expedition to the Food Factory-a Heechee spaceship found beyond the orbit of Pluto and designed to graze the cometary cloud and transform the basic elements of the universe into untold quantities of food.
Broadhead thought his motives were simple enough, a gamble on a breakthrough that could end famine forever and would make him the wealthiest man in history. But his understanding tough-minded wife knew something else drove her husband a vision of his lost love poised forever at the event horizon of a black hole, where Robin had abandoned her.
Every scrap of Heechee lore that could be brought back and interpreted increased the chance that he would someday somehow be able to reach and perhaps Even rescue is beloved Gellle-Klara Moynlin.
After three and a half years messages came back from the expedition that electrified the world the Food Factory was still working...they had found a human aboard.. they had discovered the key to the use of a whole new level of technology... And it appeared they had found the Heechee!
