Product Description

Laryn and her sisters know nothing about the basics of life because the Federation has always supplied them with every need, but at a terrible price. Now they have a chance to join with a pastoral colony and leave behind the dangers of life in the Federation forever. Since it means staying together they take it, along with 500 other 'Fed girls', all of whom are looking for the same thing. Freedom.‘Pastoral’ is just another word for primitive—a concept Federation citizens can hardly comprehend—and the Fed girls quickly discover that their new-found freedom comes with great responsibility. It's a struggle to learn all the skills they'll need for a life of self-sufficiency, but these difficulties pale when compared to the social and emotional trials they face. Laryn and her sisters know nothing of the ways of their fellow colonists, whose lives include such foreign concepts as community and, strangest of all, marriage—which will soon be required of them.Despite the Fed girls' agreement to marry, Laryn is determined to keep her little family together for as long as possible. But when a man slips past her own carefully built defenses she is faced with an impossible choice. Marriage means abandoning her sisters to find their own way, but how can she give up the newly discovered wonder of love?Unpredictable and emotionally charged, Laryn’s story is about self-discovery and the harsh realities of choice. Desperate to find where peace and accountability meet, she must choose—but how will she decide?
