HBL Note: Although SINKING ISLANDS by Cai Emmons is a sequel to Weather Woman, it can also easily be read as a stand-alone novel. In Weather Woman, we meet Bronwyn Artair an MIT dropout who discovers she can control the weather with her mind. In SINKING ISLANDS, Bronwyn struggles to come to terms with what this power means to the world at large and attempts to teach others the power in hopes to help the planet. Cai Emmons describes herself as “weather- and climate-obsessed” which I think is evident, in a beautiful way, in both of these novels. Scroll down to read more.
