In the far future Terran asteroid miner Lt. Ard Jay Solstad crash-lands on a faraway unknown planet during a meteor storm and must survive for at least three months before the signal bouy can reach someone to dispatch rescue. Ard is stunned to meet the last survivor of the planet, a silicon-based humanoid who looks like the stained glass suncatcher he had in his window as a child. Despite the odds they fall in love as they both try to survive on what they can glean from his ship---glass for her---and carbon-based foods for him from the planet. But, facing almost certain death as she cannot physically leave her planet, Ard must leave her behind when the droid ship arrives to rescue him.
Three years later now Captain Solstad returns with a full complement of miners for the lucrative claim that basically gives him the planet, and settlers to repopulate the empty planet…to find his beloved wife alive, and his SON, half Terran and half Preth. TeeCee’s and their son’s telepathic abilities aid in the investigation of colony bigots and prevent tragedy, while the community and the surviving Preth come to terms with their existence and their changed world.
Ard’s able efforts, together with his trusted Commissioner of Police Jameson, to establish a generational world for the Terrans and the remaining Preth, bring Ard to a stunning point in the evolution of humanity.

Excerpt:

“You look a little tired after such a long trek,” he commented. “Let me fix your lunch while we relax and decide what to do the rest of our special day.”
“I already know that I want nothing more than to be with you, husband,” TeeCee stated simply. “I should like some nourishment, but there is one more element of the day that you must undertake.” She smiled at his raised eyebrow. “You have the duty and might I hope pleasure of removing this gown from your bride so that we may consummate this marriage.”
“Not that we haven’t already,” he chuckled, “but I have been looking forward to the wedding night, if I can admit that without sounding like a lecher.”
“It is only lechery if it is misdirected,” she returned.

Your direction is toward your wife and only toward me, so this is not mere lust, it is love.”
Ard leaned over and kissed her softly. “Once you have a working synthesizer, I think you should write down some of these lovely thoughts of yours. I know the Terran women will eat up our love story, when expressed by your heart.”

"An intriguing sci-fi book with many conceptual futuristic possibilities if only in your own mind. Travel from one dimension to another."
