What Love Can't Do
The first novel to portray the human consequences of global warming!
"The title of What Love Can't Do, a new novel by Kitty Beer, sounds like a bodice ripper, but it's not. Well, there is plenty of bodice ripping going on, but that's not exactly the point. Love portrays the chaotic after effects of global warming andexamines how people manage not just to survive, but also to keep their humanity, passion, and families intact." More
"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
