I have read other series by Connie Shelton and thoroughly enjoyed them. I did like this one but it took me a lot longer to get into the novel than I was expecting. The writing is good but I didn't warm up to the main characters as I have with previous of her novels.
It is still a good book but I felt like I had read the basic story or seen it on TV before but without enough differences to make it stand out. I will read the next one to see if it changes my mind.
