Following their bestsellers Vulcan's Forge and Vulcan's Heart, Josepha Sherman and Susan Shwartz conclude their new trilogy chronicling the latter-day adventures of one of Star Trek's most beloved characters, shedding new light on his world's shocking history.
The distant past: The great ships have left war-torn Vulcan behind and, after a most arduous journey, have arrived at their destination. Two worlds become the new home of the exiles: Romulus is a verdant paradise, one much different from their desert home, while Remus is a barren wasteland, albeit one that is laden with natural resources. When Karatek and his family find themselves trapped on Remus with no hope of joining their brothers and sisters on Romulus, it sparks a conflict that leads the exiles into vicious civil war.
One year after the Dominion War: The Watraii are determined to destroy the Romulan Star Empire. Ambassador Spock is equally determined to learn their secret. With the aid of his wife Captain Saavik and the U.S.S. Alliance, his old comrades Scotty, Uhura, and Chekov, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise, Spock executes a daring plan to bring about peace before the Alpha Quadrant is once again plunged into war....
The stunning conclusion to the trilogy that changes everything you thought you knew about the Vulcans and the Romulans!

Josepha Sherman is an author and folklorist whose novels include The Shattered Oath and Forging the Runes. She lives in New York City.Review:
""Golden Country" is a brilliant re-creation of mid-twentieth-century New York City and the way it shaped and was shaped by Jews who came to seek their fortunes in a land that turned out to be paved not with gold, but with comedy and tragedy, unexpected success and not always undeserved failure. Like E. L. Doctorow's "Ragtime," "Golden Country" manages to catch the spirit of history through the lives of individuals. Jennifer Gilmore's characters are wonderfully human, and it is exciting to watch their lives change as they move from the slums into the interconnected worlds of school, business, crime, and the theater." -- Alison Lurie, author of "Foreign Affairs" and "Truth and Consequences" "In Jennifer Gilmore's gleeful overthrow of the Jewish American novel, the most significant force in her characters' lives isn't guilt, or God, but the gilded temptations of organized crime, and redemption is attained through such unexpected means as a household cleaning solution. As tender as it is irreverent, "Golden Country" is a glittering debut."-- Susan Choi, author of "American Woman" "Gilmore has crafted a fine, sweeping novel of Jewish immigrant America, a 'golden country' in which History made people, while people struggled and made History. Deftly written, continuously interesting, and enjoyable, Gilmore's novel illuminates the rewards -- and the cost -- of the American dream."-- Yann Martel, author of "Life of Pi" "Sharp and funny, Jennifer Gilmore's debut novel roller-coasters through the first half of the twentieth century, showcasing not only her intelligence, her wit, and her intimate knowledge of Jewish culture but also an uncommon depth and humanity."-- Adam Langer, author of "Crossing California" and "The Washington Story" "[A] powerfully moving and ambitious debut. . . Talented and compassionate, Gilmore is a writer to watch."-- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) ..."A tale rich in folklore and history, revealing to us that there's more to Spock's home planet than meets the eye. And if you think you know all there is to the planet Vulcan...think again."-- Bill Williams, trekweb.com
