Rosemary Harper加入名為「Wayfarer」的太空船的團隊,只是因為它提供了安身立命的地方:舒適的小空間,以及能將她帶離麻煩過去的遙遠銀河冒險。

「Wayfarer」的成員是各式物種與個性的綜合體,包括來自Sissix星球的爬蟲類船長、機器人Lovey、廚師、科技人員等,不過至少船上的生活還算和平,而這也正是Rosemary所想要的,直到他們得到建造通往其他星球的超空間隧道的工作機會,完成後將得到足以過上好幾年舒適生活的報酬,但前提是在受戰爭蹂躪的星際空間的長途旅程中存活下來,還不能危害各星球間脆弱的聯盟,破壞和平……

在這過程中,Rosemary發現她不是唯一一個擁有秘密的人,其他九名成員,也各自擁有屬於自己的旅程。他們究竟擁有什麼樣的過去?他們之間會發展出什麼樣的情誼?他們有辦法克服重重難關,以一艘小小太空船之力,與廣袤的太空相抗衡嗎?


*** LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016***

The astonishing self-published debut novel that Guardian calls 'a quietly profound, humane tour de force.'

When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn't expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that's seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past.

But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptillian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life on board is chaotic, but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants.

Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They'll earn enough money to live comfortably for years... if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful.

But Rosemary isn't the only person on board with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.
