Synopsis : A major new novel from the winner of the Philip K. Dick AwardNow Wilson joins the Tor list with a breathtaking science fiction novel of a very different twentieth century, haunted, wonderful, and strange. In 1912, history was changed by the Miracle, when the old world of Europe was replaced by Darwinia, a strange land of nightmarish jungle and antediluvian monsters.To some, the Miracle was an act of divine retribution; to others, it is an opportunity to carve out a new empire. Leaving an America now ruled by religious fundamentalists, young Guilford Law travels to Darwinia on a mission of discovery that will take him further than he can possibly imagine...to a shattering revelation about mankind's destiny in the universe.
Synopsis: Wilsons fine writing, ingenious plot and humane character development make it a page-turner. ~ The Globe and Mail
