Helena lost her family and her friends when she married Roger. She never doubted her choice, but war is hell on marriages, especially when you lose.
As a veteran on the wrong side, Roger can either go through reeducation—a program which will likely kill him—or he and Helena can hide out among the asteroids and half broken space stations of their defeated land, constantly looking over their shoulder until the day comes when he is caught and executed.
They choose a third way.
But a flight intended to take them years into the future brings trouble when against all odds Helena gets pregnant. With resources for only two, Roger and Helena must struggle to survive and to hold on to the last shreds of their hope. Isolated and alone, there isn’t anything else they can do.
