Leaving a dilapidated Earth behind, Quakers across the globe pool funds and resources as they select colonists to send to a newly discovered planet to start life anew in this miraculous fusion of... science fiction with unsparing realism and keen psychology (Ursula K. Le Guin). In this carefully conceived and deeply affecting (The New York Times) novel, award-winning author Molly Gloss turns her attention to the frontiers of the future. A group of Quakers band together to abandon the ailing Earth, and travel to a settle a whole new world. The Dazzle of Day is their story.

The Dazzle of Day is a heartbreakingly good book... a rare dream of a book, passionate and lyric. The Dazzle of Day allows us to see our own world, our own present, more profoundly (San Jose Mercury News).
