Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.
But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.
Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.

Maybe I’ll come back and try again later, ...
While this sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet doesn't continue the adventures of the crew on the Wayfarer, this follows couple of characters through as warm and wonderful a story.
