If she succeeds in finding him, he’ll be charged with murder. If she fails, he won’t likely survive on his own.
It’s 2064. Ana lives in the City, an experimental community that has had little contact with outsiders in decades. When her older brother Finn disappears on her 22nd birthday, a seemingly impossible event given the City’s extensive monitoring, she quits school, moves into her station wagon and embarks on an obsessive manhunt. Unable to find him on her own, she’s forced to partner with Aaron, a detective with his own complicated history and agenda.
Together they comb the dregs of the outside world, encountering both the horrors of lawless survivor communities and the unclaimed beauty of the old world. As Ana comes closer to understanding her brother’s disappearance, she’s forced to confront the truth about herself and her place in the City.

Julie Rogers was born into a family of artists. After studying music at Interlochen Arts Academy, she migrated to philosophy and law, becoming a lawyer for the federal government. After a long career in tax litigation, she migrated (lept) into the publishing realm, editing the journal European Taxation and the IBFD’s International Tax Glossary. But her mind continued to seek out those imaginative and open areas of her early artistic and philosophical interests. She developed a passion for speculative fiction, devouring books like The Road, Handmaid’s Tale and Station Eleven. When her reading list started to dwindle, she began to write her own stories. Julie lives near Toronto. Her first novel, The Rain Belongs Here, is being released November 1, 2019.
