    I read this book many years ago and it affected me throughout my life. Five people live on a different planet and are all married to one another. They all have children they've created together and cooperate with each other within their living space and their careers. I love the name Jennen. If you know this book, please answer this post! Thanks!

    Don't remember the name Jennen, but this kind of sounds like Donald Kingsbury's Geta a.k.a. Courtship Rite. It's a lost colony story on a world with very limited resources and technology. I think they only have rudimentary radio, but they have made considerable progress in biology with genetics. The social structure of the various clans is pretty complex, and they make alliances through polyamorous marriages.
