Add to Wish List
Multiple award winner Octavia E. Butler's astonishing novels
have made her a powerful, acclaimed voice in women's
fiction, African-American literature, and modern science
fiction. Parable of the Sower is her stunning
portrait of an all-too-believable near future, a
twenty-first century of horror -- and hope.
GOD IS CHANGE
Lauren Olamina is an empath, crippled by the pain of
others. Cloistered inside a neighborhood enclave in a U.S.
where the distance between the haves and the have-nots has
widened to a gaping chasm, she lives a protected life. But
one night, violence explodes, and the walls of her
neighborhood are smashed, annihilating Lauren's family and
friends -- all she loves and knows.
Now the empath must face the world outside. Leading a
tiny band of desperate followers through a thousand miles of
Hell, she is a prophet bearing nothing but the promises of
new life and a new faith...Earthseed.
America, 2025...From the ruins will arise a new prophet, a
new path, a new day...
