This is a short story from the author's Endurance Series, it is number 5.1, EVANGELIYA and although each book can be read as a standalone, reading them in order enhances this 1,000 year journey that man is making to reach their new home. This particular story has 4 main characters, each a pair in love. In this world of strict codes not just anyone can have a child. The ships AI chooses who is to get a child and in this instance chooses a father from one couple, but a mother from another. Read about their journey from confusion and fear, to painful acceptance. Can they raise a child for the next 18,19,20 years or so, knowing that the person they love will not be there with them. There is so much emotion in this beautiful story and what they have to go through. This is another great story in mankind's journey to their future, with problems unforeseen and solutions discovered as they move forward within their enclosed world. I highly recommend this book and series to all lovers of Sci-Fi and to lovers of great world building writers.
