A thoughtful SF novel I had trouble putting down!

A thoughtful SF novel I had trouble putting down! Lord’s sophomore effort follows a yearlong mission to search out the closest genetic matches for a nearly extinct race, in the hope of rebuilding their people. This is a story of cultural politics, anthropological development, adventure, and romance. I was reminded of Ursula LeGuin (The Left Hand of Darkness), Karen S. Traviss (The City of Pearl), and occasionally even Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre)—but Lord has her own unique and enthralling voice.
