There is a planet where they hoped to find one, but it is inhabited. The humanoid inhabitants have been visiting Earth for millenia but are now ravaged by diseases brought back to their home world, Aupes.

The book tells how the humans and their hosts work together to create a harmonious and healthy society, aided by a truly shocking revelation that shows the heroine, all too clearly, that she has in fact led the human race to extinction after all.
