Ruin’s Wake by Patrick Edwards

Synopsis via Goodreads:
A moving and powerful science fiction novel with themes of love, revenge, and identity. A story about humanity, and the universal search to find salvation in the face of insurmountable odds.

An old soldier in exile embarks on a desperate journey to find his dying son.  
A young woman trapped in an abusive marriage with a government official finds hope in an illicit love.  
A female scientist uncovers a mysterious technology that reveals that her world is more fragile than she believed.
  

Unification imagines a world ruled by a totalitarian government, where history has been erased and individual identity is replaced by the machinations of the state. As the characters try to save what they hold most dear – in one case a dying son, in the other secret love – their fates converge to a shared destiny.

Tune in tomorrow for our review!
