Stella, an unplanned child, now fifteen years old, is left alone on the space station when the crew leaves to return home. Struggling to survive, she soon learns that an apocalyptic disaster has struck the earth. No replacement crew will be coming. The only comfort she finds is in her dreams. But could the vivid images be real?
In the white-washed Truth society, under the dome, they don’t acknowledge dissenting rebels like her. But when her life is threatened, Mark, a devout follower of the Truth offers her refuge. She’s always had a thing for Mark and now she needs him like never before. Nameless and with no memory of her past, she’s afraid and in desperate need of companionship…but he won’t even look at her that way. Mark says he’ll help her get away. But even if she does escape the dome, what will she find outside…and how will she be able to face it alone?
