"Joel Patterson should be happier than ever. He's just returned from a two-week vacation in London, where he met Philip, who might be the man of his dreams. Instead, Joel's heading to Maine for his mother's funeral. He quits his job to fulfill one last request for his mother: unload his parents' albatross of an RV by delivering it to an old family friend - in California. Somehow, Joel's high school "friend" Lincoln has invited himself along on the ride - and into Joel's bed. The other person who's invited herself along? The ghost of his mother, who still has plenty to say about her son's judgment (or lack thereof). Joel has to get the RV to San Francisco, get rid of Lincoln, and get back to Philip. It would also make him feel better if he learned what's keeping his mother tied to this earthly plane. However Joel manages it, the route is likely to be anything but straight."--Page 4 of cover

This novel tells the story of Rebecca Sinclair, a twenty-six-year-old farmer in the mid-22nd century in the Midwestern United States. Her family has farmed the land at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers for more than a hundred years, but that task is harder than ever considering the rain never falls, the river level keeps dropping, and her neighbors are shutting down their farms and moving north or getting out of the business as society starts to dry up and blow away like topsoil. It's about to get even harder. Her estranged astronaut brother brings her a grim warning: in ten years, the Mississippi will dry up and leave the confluence barren. Even more stunning: he wants her to join Exodus, the mission he's leading to establish the first human colony on another world, 22 light years away. Rebecca must decide whether she can let go of the land long enough for a chance at a new life
