At 15, Alexis Carew has to face an age old problem - she's a girl, and only a boy can inherit the family's vast holdings. Her options are few. She must marry and watch a stranger run the lands, or become a penniless tenant and see the lands she so dearly loves sold off. Yet there may be another option, one that involves becoming a midshipman on a shorthanded spaceship with no other females.

A Very Different (But Very Good) Sci-Fi Tale

I LOVED THIS STORY
I would definately recommend this book to a friend and have in fact have already recommended it to several people! I got this book free for a review, but would spend a credit on it in a heartbeat. In fact, I was quite annoyed when I found out that the next book was not yet out!
I would say this book is a cross between the TV series Firefly and the book The Martian, as far as the Science Fiction aspect of the story goes. That is the way I would describe it to others. However, I would have to add that it is one of those tales, like the Harry Potter books, that could be enjoyed by any age range. There is a heroine who is the underdog, the people in her corner, and the ones working against her. The writer is excellent. I don't know if this is his (or her) first book, but if it is, I think they have a long and successful career ahead of them.When this book is discovered by others, as I know it will be, it will be a bestseller.
She did a wonderful job with everyone, and there were alot of characters. It would have been a tough job as a narrator (and I know since I am one) to differentiate all the people in the story in a way the listener can keep them straight.
It was a bit too long for that. I listened every chance I got though.
I loved it and am looking forward to the next book.
