Maureen Bishop's family owns Bishop Colonization Conglomerates, the richest and most powerful company on Earth. Pampered with the best of everything money and power can give, she is a spoiled young woman, unappreciative of the life she leads until time strips away all of it.
On its return from a mining colony planet, her ship is destroyed and she remains in her life-saving capsule, away from everything she has ever known. She goes rapidly from a high tech lifestyle to living in a hut, though the technology that has survived with her will come in very useful.
She learns that her family has secrets that would shake the company to its very core. You know things are bad when your family name is considered the worst of curse words.
Her journey will change her in ways she could never have imagined - physically, mentally and most importantly, in her heart.
