SPOILER SPOILER
I agree with rdk about the Aral and Cordelia. I wish it wasn’t so though, but I feel LMB put it in to highlight Cordelia’s Betan nature. However what I thought was quite empowering was her and Jole being a couple – she is a true cougar as he’s 26 years younger. The whole storyline about the IVF and uterine replicators was also very interesting, and makes us think if we could have this in the future in our own world. I really like the idea of a uterine replicator – but it’s really quite a way from Dolly the sheep. This is a slow-moving book, reflective, and about second chances at love, while being true to the first love. I think older readers may enjoy it more, as they may identify better with a 76-year-old widowed Cordelia
