In Liljestrand's debut novel, a climate crisis on the heels of the Covid pandemic devastates Europe. Four narrators voice the perspectives of four unique characters. Matt Addis makes the anger and impatience in Didrik's voice visceral as he tries to save his family as Europe burns--even while planning to end his marriage. Tamsin Kennard, as podcaster Melissa, also tells her story with impatience. In this case, it emphasizes her narcissism. Joe Jameson gives André, son of a former tennis star, a voice that alternates between needing Dad's approval and plotting a way to get out from under the weight of his expectations. Imogen Wilde, as the voice of Didrik's daughter, Vilja, balances impatience with the adults' incompetence and her own belief in a viable future despite the present climate reality.
