Adam Lang is an astronaut about to leave Earth forever on a one-way flight to a far-distant planet. As the hours count down near launch time, Jamie Austen struggles to make it to him having only recently learned he was her father.
Note: the first half of the book deals with Austen, Lang, and a host of problems just before his departure. The second half deals with his activities off-world. That first half was itself released as a standalone novella .
