Memory of Water: A Novel - Emmi Itäranta

One of those chance finds on Amazon.  A link followed rather than ignored.  In some ways it looks like yet another dystopia + YA female lead.  What sets it apart in the first 4 chapters is the quality of writing.

 

I can't see it suddenly changing gear to high-speed action, either.  Wherever the journey leads, it will be slower-paced, mood-driven.

 

I'm impressed enough already that I've added it to the SFWA Nebula suggested reading list.  I hope on several levels I don't come to regret that.
