Two hundred years after beginning a quest to revive Earth's dying sun and thus preserve the base genetic stock from which galactic humanity sprang, Dr. Adela awakens from stasis and encounters the stagnant Empire government

In To Save the Sun Ben Bova and A. J. Austin told the epic tale of Adela de Montgarde, the brilliant astrophysicist who conceived the centuries-long plan to forestall the death of Earth's sun, thus preserving the original genetic material of the Empire of the Hundred Worlds - and of the Emperors who enabled her visionary plan.
Now, choosing to leave behind the man she loved, Adela has undergone cold sleep, returning two hundred years later to oversee the final stages of her project. She awakens to an Empire transformed: her son Eric is Emperor, faster-than-light travel has finally been achieved, and humanity has spilled out into innumerable self-sufficient new planets far beyond the Empire's Hundred Worlds.
