Renata Ghali believed in Lee Suh-Mi's vision of a world far beyond Earth, calling to humanity. A planet promising to reveal the truth about our place in the cosmos, untainted by overpopulation, pollution and war. Ren believed in that vision enough to give up everything to follow Suh-Mi into the unknown.
More than 22 years have passed since Ren and the rest of the faithful braved the starry abyss and established a colony at the base of an enigmatic alien structure where Suh-Mi has since resided alone. All that time Ren has worked hard as the colony's 3-D printer engineer, creating the tools necessary for human survival in an alien environment and harbouring a devastating secret.
Ren continues to perpetuate the lie forming the foundation of the colony for the good of her fellow colonists, despite the personal cost. Then a stranger appears, far too young to have been part of the first planetfall, a man who bears a remarkable resemblance to Suh-Mi.
The truth Ren has concealed since planetfall can no longer be hidden. And its revelation might tear the colony apart....

thoughtfully written sci-fi with a soul
thoroughly enjoyed this well written sci-fi story. it's extremely efficient in that it has a limited cast and very few locations. it drives a strong plot through the eyes of a flawed protagonist which slowly reveals the mystery.
I will go on to read Newman's back catalogue on the strength of this

Is this book Lost fanfiction?
Every plot point of this book (except one) occurs in the TV show Lost. That show wasn't as profound as it thought it was, and neither is this book.
Juvenile writing style, with lots of emoting in ways that the narrator seems to think are so unique and interesting, but which I found kind of teenage.
I was more affected by the Acknowledgements, than anything in the story.
