«Una historia desgarradora, a menudo brutal, de la búsqueda escalofriante que emprende una madre en busca de su hija en un mundo postapocalíptico. Cautivadora y sorprendente» -Liv Constantine, autora del best seller La conspiración de la señora Parrish
«Sin duda, un relato brillante sobre el trauma y el dolor. En un mundo anegado, Myra no solo aprende a sobrevivir —y toda lo necesario para poder navegar sobre lo que antes fuera Norteamérica entre saqueadores, villanos, depredadores y cosas peores—, también debe prepararse para confi ar en sí misma y en los demás. Nosotros la acompañamos durante su viaje. Myra es una de las heroínas más memorables que hemos conocido en los últimos años» -Theodore Wheeler, autor de Kings of Broken Things

A Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year

An inventive and riveting epic saga, After the Flood signals the arrival of an extraordinary new talent.

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 a deep expanse of open water.

Stubbornly independent Myra and her precocious seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, fish from their small boat, the Bird, visiting dry 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. Then, in a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra suddenly discovers that Row was last seen in a far-off encampment near the Arctic Circle. Throwing aside her usual caution, Myra and Pearl embark on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas, hoping against hope that Row will still be there.

On their journey, Myra and Pearl join forces with a larger ship and Myra finds herself bonding with her fellow seekers who hope to build a safe haven together in this dangerous new world. But secrets, lust, and betrayals threaten their dream, and after their fortunes take a shocking—and bloody—turn, Myra can no longer ignore the question of whether saving Row is worth endangering Pearl and her fellow travelers.

A compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope, 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.
