Orphaned as a child, The Rowan Child is a strong telepath whose cries could be heard far away. She grows up surrounded by those who will help and hinder her evolving into one of the most powerful of her kind - a T1.
The review of this Book prepared by Rachael

The Rowan is orphaned at a very young age, and no one, not even her knows what her real name is or who her parents were. Because she is a powerful telepath and telekinetic, she is trained to be a Prime, so that she can one day shuttle people and cargo from one planet or moon to another. The strength of her abilities causes the Rowan to feel lonely, separate from other people. When she is telepathically contacted by a man on a far away colony, she sees an end to her loneliness. However, first she and the other telepaths must prevent a space ship full of insect-like aliens from destroying the human race.

Rowan is trying to come to terms with the huge amount of power she holds within her. The power she has never been seen before in some one so young. We see her from the time she is 3 until somewhere in her 20s.
