This note contains spoilers for the book.
Starting the "Miles Vorkosigan" series, with the meeting of his parents.
Cordelia meets Aral from opposite sides of war parties on Sergyar. His people mostly kill her people, but he seems to be having a little problem with mutiny.
After the war, she ends up going to Barrayar both to be with Aral, and to escape the psychiatrists who are convinced she's been programmed by the enemy, and to avoid betraying secrets of what went on. She knows a lot of secrets of Barrayar that it wouldn't really help anybody to publicize.
I find this book stands up really very well. I probably shouldn't have put off re-reading it this long.
