Far in the future, an interplanetary civil conflict has ground to an uneasy halt, leaving its human victims bitter and desperate: Kithri, the daughter of a scientist, abandoned on a desolate mining planet with no hope to use her talents; Eril, shell-shocked pilot, finding adapting to peace more difficult than he dreamed. A freak accident sends them back to a time when their desert world was lush and green, when an alien civilization stands on the brink of a war of total destruction. And they must choose -- to remain outside the conflict or to stand up for what they believe, even at the cost of never getting home again.
"There is an emphasis on the quest for peace that is unusual when so many novels focus on the quest for dominance and victory..."
"A wild and woolly journey through time and space that contains enough imagination and plotting for an entire shelf of books."

"A beautifully constructed fantasy with characters who grow and mature before the reader's eyes and who are engagingly human while being fantastically heroic... This book is a keeper."
"I read round the clock and simply could not put it down. The people and setting are fascinating. I was delighted to see the higher consciousness ideals I feel are so precious and needed in our world, that subtle inner woven essence of truth."
