The story is maudlin in parts and does tend to drag on, but the narrative serves to carry the message that people are often presented with the need to persevere through repeated and extended losses and hardships in their lives. The ability to persevere is derived from the belief in a loving God who supports those who turn to him and who works for the good through all human experiences. It is God's love that flows through men and women, enabling them to in turn love one another.
The "roles" of men and women the story models are ones which today's progressive society rejects, and perhaps rightly so, although it's hard to imagine a more miserable set of human beings than those men and women who are striving to conform to the "roles" of today's progressive society.
I give this book five stars for its ability (like great science fiction) to take the reader into a society that seems as if it existed not just in another time, but on another planet.
