A short story by the author of Backli's Ford. The colonists who landed on Verdant saw only a lush world teeming with life, a perfect place to set down roots and grow. They didn't know the system's double moons wreaked havoc at perigee every thirty-three years. Now, over a hundred years after the landing, Dr. Rachel Annalee and her colleagues find themselves in a desperate fight to adapt to a planet that has adapted all too well to them. They will have to work fast, before they lose everything to Cycle madness. A story of love, courage and fear on a strange planet.
