I barely gave this one three stars, and I am a notoriously liberal rater and an inveterate lover of science fiction. I thought at first that this was a terrible book, but I had to revise my thinking somewhat. Upon reflection I decided it fits into a sub-genre you might call "Religious SF", and I mean it as sincere, Christian proselytizing SF, and not something like the wonderful A Canticle for Leibowitz.

A great novel about a religious order, St. Brigid, who are travelers and sometimes missionaries. Having traveled for centuries on their current vessel, they find they're in trouble. They have to find a planet to settle on but be asked to first. A messenger is sent ahead and gets involved with the struggle for freedom on the planet. He falls in love with a girl already betrothed to another. It then turns into an adventure about the overthrow of the oppressive government.

Read through the first twenty pages and make up your mind, because its a lot more of the same the rest of the way through. The lead character is named Seamus Finbar O'Neil, and his name is the subtlest thing about him. No quiet, delicate subtext here - just a wee mite of a hero's tale laid on with a thick brogue. I thought it was fun, but it's likely an acquired taste :-)

A little uneven, but it's one of his first books so that's not surprising. You can see the threads of characters that he develops more fully in his later books, as he sticks pretty close to type. I love his books, they gave me a new outlook on religion in general and Catholicism in particular. I'm really going to miss Andrew Greeley as an author.
