The Harrisons are a perfectly ordinary couple--except that their daughter is destined to become empress of the galaxy. The Harrisons aren't aware of her origins: Sally was implanted in Mrs Harrison's womb (alongside the Harrisons' biological son, Bobby) during an electrical storm, to protect the infant from the war raging between the Empire and the Confederacy. Now it's time for Sally to return home and take her place as ruler. But when she's taken to the hospital after a bike accident and her alien origins are discovered, the government becomes involved. Now neither her biological family nor her adopted family can get close enough to Sally to help her fulfil her destiny.
