This is a personal journal/travelogue of a young woman from Mars enroute to Earth with a stopover in Venus. My favorite part is when she and the other women on the spaceship are taking care of the babies in a low grav environment. Later, she and her younger brother and Uncle get into trouble on Venus and it's up to her brother to save the day. I didn't care for the last chapter, it was written by her brother because she was injured by an explosion from a bomb that he smuggled in. Overall, a very enjoyable novel I was able to read in a few days.
