When her son reached adulthood, Vonika made the decision to emigrate to Kami, settling in the nation of Temia. In the years since, she's married a Temian woman, established a distinguished career in architecture, and found the sense of belonging that she, as an autistic woman, struggled to find on Earth.
But the approach of old age brings decisions that Vonika knows she can't avoid forever. And as Temia teeters on the edge of war, Vonika finds herself a reluctant emissary for peace.
