Excellent hard SF from an author new to me. What could have been average scientist fiction, with a plot involving a scientist working with a quantum computer which achieves sentience. But the scientist has a depth of character, and in redeeming his relationship with his daughter, which throws a lens on his widowhood, there is depth to the story.
