Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Here is spiritual sci-fi for teens--a witty, fast-paced novel that explores the inner realms as well as the outer ones.

Fed up with life at home, Jessica Baron is selected for a trip to the moon ("I wasn't at all sure my mother would let me go, but I filled in the forms anyway.") The spaceship strangely misses its destination and hurtles onward into deep space for a mysterious voyage that transcends culture, time, and the mind itself.

Here is spiritual sci-fi at its best--a witty, fast-paced novel that explores the inner realms as well as the outer ones. The author is as much at home with astro-physics and elementary particles as she is with Western mysticism and Kashmir Shaivism.

Margaret Simpson received a Degree in English Literature from Cambridge University. For the past twenty-five years she has earned her living as a free-lance writer, working in television, for both the BBC and for independent TV companies. She has contributed to many well-known series, has written radio plays, and has published several novels for adults and younger people as well.
