Next of Kin


A science fiction retelling of the Book of Ruth, Melinda Mitchell’s debut novel NEXT OF KIN is a thrilling exploration of the human spirit.

War-weary veteran Ami Lehem loses her husband, her farm, and the life she built on the planet Dibon following a catastrophic meteor strike. Her journey across the galaxy to return her mother-in-law to her ancestral home on the moon Melas is far more adventure than either woman wanted, but the web of intrigue waiting for them at the end of their odyssey threatens to drag Ami back to a life of war.
