This space opera starts with two story lines, the first about children snatched from their world by a moralistic culture that believes it is saving them from a terrible fate (even if they are losing their families and their cultures), and the the second about an attempted rescue of a disabled spaceship still inhabited by a mind the rescuers consider a family member. It is hard not to give any spoilers, but the ending left my mouth open. Coming across a story like this once in a while makes it worth enduring many lesser works.

The story is available free from the author's website.

The real world analogies are numerous, but as science fiction the author can define the situation with enough complexity that there is no clear answer, but nevertheless keep it sufficiently simple to be starkly defined.
