From Young Eun: It was such a pleasure to explore Gilead and its time leaps through John Ames' letters to his son. We felt the wideness of the generations. I thought we could do some more exploration-- this time, we're leaving earth. This is another one of Obama's picks(I didn't do it intentionally!)--a great read for folks who are brand new to science fiction and who are interested in historical fiction. Can't wait to discuss with you!
