A haunting and provocative fictional autobiography set in an alternate 20th century. Born at the end of the old world, Miriam grows up during The Great Reckoning, a decades-long war that nearly decimates humanity. When the war finally ends, The New Society arises. To ensure a lasting peace, The New Society forbids anything that may cause tribal loyalties, including traditional families. Suddenly, everyone must live disconnected and unattached. A researcher at heart, Miriam becomes involved in implementing this detachment process, but the harmful effects of her research become too much for her and she devises a secret plan to destroy the system from within.
