Earth's Blue Sky, Will Our Children Remember?

Earthships: Book 2

This story begins in 2036 with the wedding of protagonist Laurel, a young woman with Asperger’s Syndrome that causes her to have premonitions, and Sage Halley, a Marine returning from Libya who is studying to be an environmental engineer. Laurel and Sage met on a train traveling to Rigby, Idaho in Earthships Book 1, where they saved the lives of all the people on the train.

Laurel is an architect who has started a business building earthships which are underground fortresses that are off the grid and protect people and animals from the climate crisis. Sage and Laurel’s extended family live on an inherited farm at the edge of the town. They have taken advantage of artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies to protect their combined fortresses.

Forester, Laurel’s father, is a former soldier and environmentalist who takes on the planet’s corporations, Idaho’s dangerous gangs and enemies against science, the environment and migrants. His enemies create many road blocks that the family must overcome to survive. They also face the changing weather and it’s destruction and grow enough food to help the town while teaching others to become preppers.

Earth’s oceans have absorbed much of the heat in the atmosphere, resulting in huge and powerful hurricanes, tornadoes and cyclones. Glaciers are gone, oceans are rising and coastal areas are submerging.

With temperatures reaching up to 130 degrees during five months of summer, rain and flooding are frequent in some states due to heat and moisture in the air, while constant fires are caused by drought in many other states.

People who can, migrate North, others who are poor and elderly stay and when the heat and humidity get too high, they die. Laurel’s family makes room for immigrants escaping danger because they know we are all fragile creatures living in a very dangerous world and trying to survive what may be the sixth extinction.

What people are saying...

“I could feel Bonnie’s passion and compassion for the future of our planet and for humankind. She’s that kind of writer. I recommend her book highly to anyone interested in modern cli-fi novels.”

– Dan Bloom, editor, The Cli-Fi Report

“The story ends in juicy suspense, which serves as a building block for Earthships, Book 3. It’s a thought-provoking read that I would recommend to preppers, environmentalists, climate change enthusiasts, policy makers, and educators.”
