Ron CharlesHarrigan's descriptions of space training and flight sound as though he could pilot the shuttle himself, but what's more impressive ultimately is his knowledge of the conflicted feelings of a woman struggling to figure out what matters to her most. "Why would any mother," Lucy thinks in a moment of crippling self-doubt, "voluntarily leave her child to travel to such a place, a place that was as blank as death, and in whose perfect soundlessness his cries to her were sure to go unheard?" The gravity of that question has weighed down women since they first dared to look up. Lucy's answer won't satisfy everyone, but it's explored here with great insight and a bracing touch of adventure.
