The Child Goddess


Winner of the 2005 Endeavor Award

There is something mysterious and terrifying about a young child, discovered and imprisoned by Port Force workers on the ocean planet of Virimund. Mother Isabel Burke, of the Priestly Order of Mary Magdalene, a medical anthropologist, is called to be the child’s guardian, but Isabel finds she must also be the girl’s protector against the powerful corporation trying to exploit her. Isabel leads the effort to discover who the child is, and how a young girl could be the only survivor of a colony assumed lost for more than three centuries.

Though Isabel has sworn never to see Dr. Simon Burke again, she needs him to help her solve the enigma of Oa of Virimund, and to try to thwart the powerful people who suspect that Oa’s small body holds the key to extended life.
