The story of Shifting Earth goes like this: “In a not-so-distant future, a freak particle storm has landed botanist Dr. Maeve Lindholm on an idyllic yet strange parallel Earth, with no way back home. Here, two moons rule society, and nature outshines science. Yet, all isn’t what it seems as this Eden-like existence is on the brink of unthinkable change. Astronomer Zuzi battles this fractious society every day—just like Maeve did on her own climate-ravaged planet. Both women are fighters, and both face a choice: forge new paths, or save the worlds they’ve always known? Maeve will have to decide, and fast– because she’s fighting for more than just herself.”
