Life On Earth
The Silver Ship & The Sea
Genre: Science Fiction
Brenda Cooper’s The Silver Ship and the Sea is a masterfully woven tale of discrimination, survival and, most importantly, friendship. Despite the alien world this story is set in, Brenda has truely captured the very essence of the human experience.
The story follows Chelo Lee and a handful of other children; survivors abandoned after a war too distant in their past to remember but too recent for the victorious colonists to forget.
Though their fringe world, Fremont, is home to a host of natural dangers, relations between their parents’ genetically modified colony and a pre-existing, purist, colony decayed to the point of war.
Being genetically enhanced may have its physical advantages, but for these children it was also a great handicap.
Adopted as prisoners of war when their parents were forced to flee Fremont, the children were seperated and kept under a watchful eye. Though some found loving homes, they toiled daily to maintain even a paltry level of acceptance in their communities.
For years these hardy kids kept strong in the face of their cold, and often oppressive, caretakers but when disaster strikes the struggling colony tensions begin to rise once again.
Can peace be diplomatically achieved or is another war inevitable?
