The world has emerged from the Twilight Century, a hundred years of humanity striving to survive after rising seas and oil wars devastated entire countries. In New Qian, part of the Scandinavian Union, natural snow and ice now exist only in historical books. Fresh, untainted water is a precious resource, citizens' personal quotas strictly enforced by the armed water guards. Noria Katio is an apprentice tea master. When she turns seventeen, she is entrusted with a secret - the existence of a hidden freshwater spring nearby, preserved by her family for generations. But as Noria takes possession of the knowledge, she holds the fate of everyone she loves in her hands...

From the Back Cover:

The award-winning speculative debut novel, now in English for the first time!

In the far north of the Scandinavian Union, now occupied by the power state of New Qian, seventeen-year-old Noria Kaitio studies to become a tea master like her father. It is a position that holds great responsibility and a dangerous secret. Tea masters alone know the location of hidden water sources, including the natural spring that once provided water for her whole village. When Noria's father dies, the secret of the spring reaches the new military commander . . . and the power of the army is vast indeed. But the precious water reserve is not the only forbidden knowledge Noria possesses, and resistance is a fine line.

Threatened with imprisonment, and with her life at stake, Noria must make an excruciating, dangerous choice between knowledge and freedom.

Descrizione libro Harper Voyager, UK, 2014. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. 1st Edition. Signed, lined and dated by the author. Synopsis : With the lyricism of Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, and the world building brilliance of Atwood, Emmi Itaranta's effortless and poignant debut novel is a coming of age story full of emotional drama and wonderment. Some secrets demand betrayal. 'You're seventeen, and of age now, and therefore old enough to understand what I'm going to tell you,' my father said. 'This place doesn't exist.' 'I'll remember,' I told him, but didn't realise until later what kind of promise I had made. When Noria Kaitio reaches her seventeenth birthday, she is entrusted with the secret of a freshwater spring hidden deep within the caves near her small rural village. Its preservation has been the responsibility of her family for generations. Apprenticed to her father, one of the last true tea masters, when Noria takes possession of the knowledge, she become much more than the guardian of ancestral treasure; soon, she will hold the fate of everyone she loves in her hands. Signed by Author(s). Codice libro della libreria 001208
