Summary As drought devastates the western U.S., a single woman seeks the solitude and safety of the Pacific Northwest, where she learns to survive.
Jean Brighton and Arthur Cluny grew up in the limelight, children of space pioneers who built the orbiting space laboratory. Arthur carried on his father's work at the lab, but Jean fled to the isolation of the Oregon high desert, harboring a hatred for the space station and the intrigue that surrounds it. Yet, when an artifact--possibly of alien origin--is retrieved from space, Jean, now a linguist, and Arthur are assigned to the team responsible for deciphering the code it contains, work which may determine whether a nuclear war between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. can be avoided.
