The future depends on reconnecting to our past…
Do you have the courage to hit the reset button in your life? Does humanity as a whole? Madeleine White’s sci-fi novel Mother of Floods immerses the reader in the brave new world of 24/7 self-sustaining algorithms, showing how individual choices can lead to powerful ripple effects–if we are bold enough to collectively remake ourselves and the world around us.
In a work that is underpinned by strands of ancient and modern mythology, White explores what it means to be human in the 21st century as digital, physical, and spiritual worlds collide. Mother of Floods is set at the end of our world, and it follows Martha and Dave Johnstone, her dead husband who lives on in digital form, as they embark on a journey to heal their troubled family and overcome mountains of debt. As they receive support from three women from different backgrounds and countries, the interlocking narratives become a battle for the soul of the world, and connections between the spiritual, technological, and human worlds, create a transformative energy that infects the digital world, creating a new kind of being. In other words, the Internet gets a soul.
Fans of Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testaments, will enjoy how the impersonal, transactional information superhighway is transformed into a sentient force for good, with the language of electric pulses shaping words of power that convert the thoughts we think into positive changes in our physical world.
