Lauren Olamina's love is divided among her young daughter, her community, and the revelation that led Lauren to found a new faith that teaches "God Is Change". But in the wake of environmental and economic chaos, the U.S. government turns a blind eye to violent bigots who consider the mere existence of a black female leader a threat. And soon Lauren must either sacrifice her child and her followers -- or forsake the religion that can transform human destiny.
In California 2030, a new faith is born: "God is Change." Convinced that her quiet community, Acorn, should chart humankind's destiny by leaving Earth and peacefully colonizing the stars, Lauren and her faithful followers make preparations. But the sudden collapse of society and the reckless rise of fanatics threaten Acorn's very existence. Now, with her followers brutally enslaved and her own daughter stolen from her, Lauren must fight back to save the new world order ... or die trying.
