Annotation

Leflo is a lost colony in Africa that has been isolated for over a century. The community was established with very strict laws that were to be followed to the letter. The result was a peaceful community, but the negative effects outweighed the positive. An example is that at eighteen girls must choose to marry or not. They are provided for by the community whatever their choice, but if they choose not to they wear distinctive dress and can never marry. Much of the novel is romance.
