Shipwrecked on an uncharted island by a violent storm and abandoned by her friends could have meant profound loneliness for Tatara had it not been for a chance encounter with an alien visitor from the stars named John Wells. Gamma Station is a romantic tale about a man and woman who are drawn to a space station orbiting high above a planet in the far reaches of the galaxy where their association with one another soon evolves into true love. When she returns to the home of her family for a brief visit, denunciation as a heretic by the hierarchy thrusts Tatara into captivity and even threatens her life. With the power of modern science at his command, no lack of determination prevents John from using every means at his disposal to rescue the woman who is everything to him. Now a fugitive in her own country, Tatara escapes with John to find a new life among the distant stars.
