The sword of the lady: a novel of the change
The New York Times bestselling author continues his "epic of survival and rebirth" (Library Journal), chronicling a modern world without technology.

His final destination is Nantucket, an island overrun with forest, inhabited by a mere two hundred people who claim to have been transported there from out of time. Only one odd stone house remains standing. Within it, Rudi finds a beautifully made sword waiting for him-and once he takes it up, nothing will ever be the same...
