Lucie Bowen left the islands twenty years ago, when the May Day Quake set loose catastrophic waves along the west coast, from Alaska to California, shattering thousands of lives. Her father disappeared in an explosion at the Marrow Island oil refinery, destroying the island's ecosystem and sending Lucie and her mother to the mainland to start anew. Now Marrow Island is no longer uninhabitable. A mysterious Colony has conjured life again from Marrow's soil. But this rebirth seems to have come at great cost to the colonists themselves. As a journalist, what price will Lucie pay for the truth?

Such a good book, particularly is you live in the NW. It will really get you thinking about "the big one" in terms of earthquakes while you drift through an intense story about alternative ways to live.

This book has an environmental theme which runs quietly in the background as opposed to being the focus of the book. It is a fairly engaging story with a bit of a mystery element. You will either love or hate the ending which is ambiguous but leaves lots of room for thought. Overall it was a good read for me.
