Brav and Shal are a young couple living in a small community where they and others are cared for by an alien they call Mother. They know little of the world around them and in fact an electronic barrier keeps all within the confines of their small village. When Shal gives birth to a boy, most of the villagers have no idea what has happened or what the baby is. Mother takes Shal and the baby away but Shal is returned alone a few days later. She desperately wants to have the child back and she and Brav set off to reclaim the boy. They will face danger along the way and learn something of their heritage before coming face to face with Mother, who explains all. Written by
