An unforgettable, inventive, and riveting epic saga about a mother, her daughters and their struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic flooded world. After the Flood signals the arrival of a game-changing and necessary new voice in fiction. One hundred years into the future, the w...orld has been utterly transformed. Myra lives with her eight year old daughter, Pearl, in what used to be Nebraska. Just before Pearl's birth, floodwaters finally inundated their home after years of slowly overtaking the continent, starting with the great coastal cities. In its wake, the monstrous deluge has left an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of open water. Stubbornly independent Myra fishes from her small boat, the Bird, coming onto land only to trade for supplies and information, gutting any man and taking on any obstacle that threatens their lives. Precocious, feisty Pearl is her one reason for living, and a distraction from the memories of her older daughter, Row, who was kidnapped during the terrifying surge that swept away their home. But then, in a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra discovers that Row is not dead, but being held captive by a violent gang of raiders on the far-off coast of what used to be Greenland. Throwing aside her usual caution, Myra embarks on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas to rescue her child. A compulsively readable novel that juxtaposes dark despair and soaring hope, Myra and Pearl's journey is exhilarating, action-packed, sometimes frightening, but ultimately laced with wonder, redemptive and astonishing.
