An unforgettable, inventive, and riveting epic saga, After the Flood signals the arrival of a game-changing and necessary new voice in fiction.
A little more than a century from now, our world has been utterly transformed. After years of slowly overtaking the continent, rising floodwaters have obliterated America’s great coastal cities and then its heartland, leaving nothing but an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by ocean.
Myra and her seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, fish from their small boat, visiting land only to trade for supplies and information in the few remaining outposts of civilization. For seven years, Myra has grieved the loss of her oldest daughter, Row, who was stolen by her father after a monstrous deluge overtook their home in Nebraska. When, in a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra suddenly discovers that Row was last seen in a far-off encampment near the Arctic Circle, she and Pearl embark on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas, hoping Row will still be there.
But secrets, lust, and betrayals threaten their dream, and after their fortunes take a shocking—and bloody—turn, Myra must confront the question of whether saving Row is worth endangering Pearl and her fellow travelers.
Compulsively readable, After the Flood is a magnificent, action-packed, and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder—an affecting and wholly original saga both redemptive and astonishing.
