"Slonczewski creates many stunning ideas and moments in this book." -- James Schellenberg
From Publishers Weekly:
its predecessor, A Door into Ocean , this thoughtful, well-crafted novel
is set on the ocean world of Shora. Shora's
original settlers, the Sharers, are peace-loving women who live in close
harmony with nature. They now share their world with the 12 floating
cities of Elysium, a society of nearly ageless humans who live surrounded
by wealth and advanced technology. The Windclans, a family hailing from
a pastoral, underpopulated world where children are highly prized and
women revered, come to work in one Elysian city. But as they try to
adapt to the Elysians' unfamiliar ways, family members find themselves
caught up in the political intrigues among the Elysians, the Sharers
and their friends and enemies on neighboring planets-- culminating in
a confrontation with a potentially lethal adversary from within Elysium
A Door into Ocean
