Paul McAuley. Macy Minnot’s last Christmas on Dione, Ring Racing, Fiddler’s Green, The Potter’s Garden. (Edge of Infinity).

A gentler story than you might expect, set post-Quiet War. The death of her estranged father on Dione leads his adult daughter to visit to spread his ashes, and in doing so she (and the reader) gets to consider the nature of the people who travel very, very far from Earth to find what they need to find. There’s a secret at the end, in a poetic finale.
