Summary

Cory is the child of two worlds: when his birth-people come, they will break his mother's heart...but they may also be this world's only salvation. 

Molly and Gene Myers rescued Cory and kept him safe from those who wanted to use his remarkable knowledge and power for their own ends...and in doing so, they rediscovered themselves and fell in love with a remarkable child. 

In this gripping sequel to Our Child of the Stars, Cory and his new family are having to deal with the consequences of fame - but Molly is more concerned about the future, for Cory's people are on their way. 

This is the time of Woodstock and the moon landings; war is raging in Vietnam and the superpowers are threatening each other with annihilation - but the Myers know there is a far greater threat approaching from the stars, and only Cory's people possess the knowledge to fight off the invaders. 

Our Child of Two Worlds is a remarkable story of family and the power of love, set against the backdrop of a fast-changing, terrifying decade and an interstellar threat almost beyond imagining.

Critic reviews

"Part ET, part Wonder, part Snow Child, Our Child of the Stars has the same combination of science fiction and heart-tugging tenderness that Stephen King does so well." (Grazia

"This strong and generous first novel wears its heart on its sleeve and embeds all the thrills and chills in credible human, and non-human, emotions." (Daily Mail)

"Our Child of the Stars: an out of this world winner." (Weekend Sport)

Great sequel, wonderful read

Wow! A wonderful sequel: emotional, exciting, thought provoking. I’m only sorry I’ve finished it but will definitely be rereading the book in the not too distant future.

And just to note that the narrator of both the Cory books, Patricia Rodriguez, was a joy to listen to for both. I’ve read and listened to both books and Patricia did a great job with both and nothing in her narration spoiled what I’d read. This is certainly not true of all the narrators so it’s a pleasure when a narrator enhances a book rather than detracts from it.

Highly recommended!
