The environmentally-themed science fiction classic that's "grand- scale storytelling (Library Journal)."
The year is 2073. Earth's climate is faltering and her ecosystems are breaking down. Her burgeoning populations now rely on food and energy supplies imported from colony worlds.
A routine exploratory mission to the planet Fiix finds a world at war with itself, continuously devastated by unpredictable weather patterns. When storms and flooding ruin the Terran base camp and destroy their power and communication links, the explorers must discover what's causing the weather's behavior, not just for the sake of science, but to ensure the expedition's success and survival.

“The Lear’s Daughters series has three- dimensional characters, sharp observation, stimulating science, fast action and a love story. It is exceptionally well written, and has what so much science fiction lacks—strong women characters and real soul. Both volumes are highly recommended.”
