An earth-like human society endures on the environmentally volatile planet of Tau Ceti IV - a rigid community of the faithful that has declared evil the science that caused the homeworld's destruction. The Church is the absolute power here; obedience and belief the rule.

And suddenly there is another assault on his tottering faith - and on the sacred traditions he has devoted his life to uphold. For an emissary, Voss Rhazes, has arrived from one of old Earth's journeying mobiles - the first off-planet human visitor ever to Tau Ceti - bearing remarkable hated technology that could shred the fragile emotional fabric of a family...and bring devastating chaos to their world.
