Very different first contact story, as the human is an older(70+) woman, who illicitly chose to stay behind after her colony was removed from their planet. Her personal transformation due to solo living and subsequent interaction with the previously undiscovered intelligent natives is intriguing and the alien culture is well developed.

This book creeps up on you. I first felt Ofelia was an idiot. Slowly, you realize that she is a product of her culture. And then I was very sad when the book ended. It was excellent, complex and actually makes you think.

Great story. For fans of feminist science fiction such as by Sheri Tepper and Pamela Sargent.

This book was refreshingly different. There were no huge battles against Bad humans or aliens with the good guys winning at the end by some sneaky, low chance means. It is a book that champions the idea that you are "never to old to...'. This book might make you look at Grandma, your Mom or maybe even yourself a little differently. It is about starting over and figuring out what needs to be done when you don't know the right answer.
