Titles By Karen Douglass
Uneasy with parenthood, Rose Donahue and her lover argue about his desire for a child of his own until the day when Rose disappears and awakens in a future where children are counted and births regulated, allowed only when the small community can afford to feed and house more children.
Desperate to escape the rigid rules of the small futuristic world, Rose rebels and a tragedy results. Despite her guilt and loneliness, Rose survives, finds love and finally makes a heartbreaking decision about her own future.
This girl, Theresa, Cobalt, and his adopted brother, Harry, grow up in a common neighborhood and eventually face an increasingly difficult life in the old city. Their families face a future no one had imagined.
