Philosophically brilliant and thoughtful, James Dunham’s debut novel, The Helena Orbit, charts a twisting and skillful course through the volatile pitfalls of family and politics, the thrill of scientific exploration, and the quiet, musical stirrings of humanity alone in the sublime void of space.

Everywhere young scientist Edwyn Santiago looks, the inhabitants of the colony ship Euclid seem restless. Centuries of deep space travel have taken their emotional toll on this small, artistic, and scientific society, which has precariously held itself together through generations of isolation. The arrival celebrations provide a momentous but brief respite. Pre-colonization research of the planet remains to be done and, while festivities dwindle, new threats surface.

Even as Edwyn helps to make startling new findings about the planet, she discovers a less idyllic, more cloistered side of the colony, and uncovers intrigues and secrets hidden for centuries that reopen old societal and family wounds. Taking on a duty much larger than her scientific inquiries, she strives to locate some saving grace for her yearning and divided civilization.
