The Secret of Seven Oaks(1972)
A novel by Juanita Coulson
TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE...
Renee Amos, member of the Social Outreach Sisterhood, is dedicated to righting wrongs and championing underdogs.
Never in her wildest dreams would she imagine the existence of an alien world; especially an alien world fighting for justice.
Driving back from a council hearing, Renee finds herself amidst two alien Arbiters who are on their way to an alien world to negotiate a peace treaty.
Under attack and with no other choice, the Arbiters retreat, taking Renee with them.
Suddenly she finds herself in a strange world, with human-like creatures speaking a foreign language. Ordered to wear a pendant to help her understand their language, Renee realises this world also needs to fight for justice.
Soon it becomes clear that her experience from her mission on earth is invaluable to these alien people, and with no way of getting back to earth, she has no choice but to join the Arbiter's mission.
This is her home now ... she must become one of them ...
However, years of advocating pacifism has not prepared her for the tooth-and-nail battles and interstellar politics.
With the entire star system under the threat of destruction and with her home planet, Earth, directly in the line of fire, Renee has no choice but to kill ...
'The Sisterhood' is a highly engaging science fiction political thriller. It was originally published as 'Star Sister'
