Clara Hume's novel takes the reader through apocalyptic America after climate change and other ecological disasters have greatly altered the planet. A group of survivors heads out to find loved ones, meanwhile facing painfully nostalgic memories of a better world as well as struggling through personal loss and tragedy. Across fierce deserts and ghost towns, contaminated lakes and rivers, and deplorable faces of death, the group develops surprising relationships and resolutions. Back to the Garden presents a frightening and tragic possibility for our future but doesn't ignore our affirmative connection to nature and other people. The novel attempts to open people's eyes to the importance of respecting limits, before it's too late.
