This book takes place on the planet Elsewhere, where the last a humanity is hiding from the Hobbs Land Gods. Elsewhere man is left alone to find his destiny. Problem is, what is mans destiny? Is it to be inslaved my power hungry leaders? Is it for many to inslave woman? Is it for woman to inslave man? Elsewhere has every type of system, and devation is not allowed. Meanwhile, elsewhere on Elsewhere, trouble is a brewing.

This book gets of to a slow start but the end makes it all worth it.

In the same universe as Grass and Raising the Stones, this is the third in the loosely connected trilogy. The people of the galaxy are infected, or evolving depending on who you're listening to, and a group of people try to discover why, and how to solve it.

Sheri Tepper - all of her works including this one will make you think about personal freedoms, identity, fates and destiny.

Complex, imaginative, and powerful. All of Teppers books are fantastic, and this one doesn't fail to please.

If you've ever wanted to read a book about a pair of Siamese twins, one male and one female, who travel on another planet, this is the book for you! That description sounds ridiculous, but this is actually a thoughtful but exciting book about everything from the consequences of absolute cultural noninterference to the nature of gender.
