When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, a patched-up spaceship on a long-haul job, she expects nothing more than adventure and a paycheck. But what she gets is much more – an unlikely family of lovable aliens, thrilling discoveries, and a journey that changes her perspective on the universe forever.


The Wayfarer isn't your typical starship. It's a hodgepodge of mismatched parts, held together by duct tape and the crew's shared love for adventure. When Rosemary Harper, a human with a troubled past, signs on as xenolinguist, she joins a motley crew of diverse aliens, each with their own unique quirks and talents. As they embark on a mission to transport goods across the galaxy, they encounter strange new worlds, face unexpected challenges, and forge powerful bonds of friendship. Through it all, Rosemary discovers the true meaning of acceptance, the power of understanding, and the beauty of diversity in a universe teeming with life.
