Dr. Cherijo Grey Veil flees Earth to the remote planet of Kevarzanga-2, seeking to get away from her domineering father and the xenophobic Terrans. She finds interesting challenges and romance working with a variety of alien species at the FreeClinic. Then a plague strikes that kills thousands. When that’s resolved, the news comes that her father really, really wants her back, and is bringing enormous resources to make that happen.
I didn’t like the book at first, but it grew on me as I read more of it and I got caught up in the character and her troubles.
