Another gripping eco-thriller!
Testimonial for The Hampshire Project:
“If you are prone to believe that even severe climate change will be well managed, that future governments will calmly move cities inland, providing good jobs in construction and engaging our better selves, Kitty Beer will turn you inside out. The compelling, gutsy characters, the cults and marauding private armies, the Prudential Tower poking out of the Boston Sea and other vivid landscapes, are horribly credible. If Beer’s trilogy, set in the 2040s, 2060s, and continuing here in the 2080s with The Hampshire Project, can’t inspire you to action, nothing will.”

Praise for What Love Can't Do, the first novel in the trilogy:
"Well-written, engaging and thought provoking."
-- Susan Henderson, Night Train Magazine
"Beer's prophetic look at the future seems not only eerily plausible, but entirely possible."
-- William Routhier, Facets magazine
