What an incredible book. This is a deeply atmospheric story of survival set in a near future ravaged by the effects of climate change. It's filled with scenes of grief and destruction, but it's surprisingly hopeful at the same time.

An astonishingly well written book. The author deftly weaves her story, needing not to serve an avalanche of words when a concise sentence suffices. I read this as if in a daze, fully immersed in the faltering landscape of a climate-ravaged Florida, populated with real people whose motivations are never really clear. We watch the protagonist, Wanda, as she ages from uncertain youth to confident maturity, discovering what is truly lost and what can truly be found again.
