A little more than a century from now, rising floodwaters have left America an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of open water. Myra and her eight-year-old daughter have been roaming the seas for years in search of Maya’s oldest daughter, Row, who was stolen by her father. On the journey, Myra and Pearl join forces with a band of Americans like them. But secrets, lust, and betrayals threaten to capsize their dream, and after their fortunes take a shocking—and bloody—turn. After The Flood is an unforgettable, inventive, and riveting epic saga that signals the arrival of an extraordinary new talent.
