Author's comments on the book
In his introduction to the book, Scott Card says that much of what he includes in the novel is speculation and adds that, "The task in this novel was to show how good people can sometimes do bad things to those they love most." He goes on to say, "Isaac was headed for a disastrously wrong decision; Rebekah chose an equally wrong method of stopping him...but in the end, the result was a good one because good people made the best of it despite all the mistakes."
