Library Journal Review

Three years after the death of her husband, Aral, Dowager Countess -Cordelia -Vorkosigan has finally moved beyond her fog of grief and is ready for a new life chapter. She will resign as Vicereine of the planet Sergyar and be a mother again (after raising the irrepressible Miles Vorkosigan), thawing out genetic material that she has banked away. In a generous impulse, she offers the extra eggs to Oliver Jole, Aral's former aide and longtime lover, to have a child of the man he loved. As the two spend time together, bonded initially by their mutual love of Aral, they find they have more in common than shared grief. Things get complicated, however, when Miles comes to Sergyar to check on his mother. VERDICT Bujold has had great success in the past writing romance featuring mature adults (Paladin of Souls), and Oliver and Cordelia make a lovely couple, albeit one with more baggage than most. A welcome addition to a series that is always a delight.-MM © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
