In a story of fate, second chances and redemption, an unlikely partnership forms between a young alien and an old human widower that will change the future of both their worlds in new sci-fi adventure, “Redemption Song: The Beginning of the Rynn-Human Alliance” (published by Archway Publishing) by author Henry A. Burns.

Small Snow Flower, a child of wealth and privilege, is a member of a highly intelligent space-faring species called the Rynn. Although she is young and untested, she is given a trading ship to command by her father. But just months into her first voyage there is a mutiny, and Small Snow Flower finds herself marooned on a primitive planet, believing she will die alone. Elsewhere, a bitter old man named Jeremy Blunt has been mourning the death of his wife for the past 50 years, cutting himself off from the world and living alone in a forest cabin, believing he will die alone. But they soon find that their worlds are about to change forever.

“Redemption is not a destination, it is a journey,” says Burns. “This book is that journey. Two lonely people, each thinking their lives were over, find each other. And in finding each other, change worlds.”

Burns also explores the fragility of modern society. “The smallest push can break it,” the author explains. In “Redemption Song,” society faces enormous pressures – and its inhabitants must struggle to find their place, and each other, in a treacherous landscape.
