It is 2085 and Laisve is learning to use the ancient waterways to travel through water and time. Sifting through the detritus of a fallen city known as The Brook, she discovers a talisman that will connect her with people from the past two centuries, including a squad of laborers at work on a huge, national monument to liberty. As waters rise and a police state encroaches, Laisve must find her way back to the early days of her imperfect country, to forge a bond that might save all their lives - and their shared dream of freedom. Thrust is a dazzling novel of body, spirit and survival, and Lidia Yuknavitch's lyrical, richly atmospheric storytelling and sharp-eyed writing is entirely transportive.
