Publisher's Summary

On the planet Glory, missionaries live in a constant unpredictable environment. Sister Mary and her husband, Brother Raymond, try to contend with the flits, which live satyr-like existences. The missionaries are exasperated with this world's disregard for cause and effect. The only constant is the clock that they brought with them. And therein lies the problem.

Jack Vance - cultural critic out of time

The story wasn't the most gripping the concealed concept was rather transparent, good message though.

Nothing unexpected

This was a nice listen but nothing unexpected in the plot or characters. I would recommend it to those who like to get hit over the head with a message that many of us have heard before about cultural differences.
