How do you create a civilization? How can ragged, desperate refugees work together to put the world back together again, after the old one has been destroyed? Will some of them rise to the occasion and build that new promised world? Will they destroy everything around them, punishing the world for their own pain?
The Teaching Woman is not about to let civilization go without a fight, no matter what she has to do. This is not the paradise she hoped for, but it could be home, if everyone would just work with each other. To that end, the refugees need a leader. She's not the leader they need, but Ayesha might be, if she would only accept her role in the rebuilding and the rival bosses understood she is their best hope.
A story about worlds lost and found, and the people who make them that way.
