Two Books With Birds on the Cover by Bonnie Jacobs
Book bans, federal curfews, and digital identity chips — what a terrifying near future! A cautionary tale set in 2042 when the United States is recovering from a series of terrorist attacks that upended the government, rewrote our civil liberties, and erased two states from the map. River, a widow who is a single mother and a veteran of the Caliphate Wars, works as a waste hauling trucker in Energy Territory No. 1, formerly known as North Dakota. Living in a dingy motel room with nothing but her books and a semi-automatic pistol for company, she is weeks away from the end of her contract and returning to her young daughter.
Finn Cunningham, a hydrologist with the United States Geology Survey (USGS) in Montana, is suspicious of environmental changes he’s seeing in nearby western waterways and decides to investigate. His decision sets him on a collision course with River, sending them both on the run. One is a fugitive and the other is a reluctant participant, as they share stories of their lives. This one-of-a-kind book points out the real dangers of extremism.
Someone commented on Amazon: “I’m not normally a fan of dystopian tales, since our own country appears to be rapidly devolving into one recently, but this one is both believable and well-written.”
