Book Review: The Memory of Water, by Emmi Itäranta

Science Fiction 3+/5

Noria Kaito, daughter of the Tea Master in Chinese Occupied Scandinavia, must keep secret the tea masters’ virgin spring, because water is a precious commodity over which wars are waged. Lyrically written with a frighteningly possible setting and characters the reader cares about, this novel has a quiet, but poetically justified ending. Don’t expect a thriller or adventure.
