From the Back Cover:

It was a miricle of science that permitted human beings to live, if not forever, then for a long time. Some people, anyway. The rich, the powerful-they lived their lives at the rate of one year every ten. Somec created two societies: that of people who lived out their normal span and died, and those who slept away the decades, skipping over the intervening years and events. It allowed great interstellar Empires to be built. It came near to destroying humanity.

After a long,long time of decadence and stagnation, a few seed ships were sent out to save our species. They carried human embryos and supplies, and teaching robots, and one man. 'The Worthing Sea' is the story of one of these men, Jason Worthing, and the world he found for the seed he carried.

Orson Scott Card is 'a master of the art of storytelling' (Booklist) and the 'Worthing Saga' is a story that only he could have written.
