Summary

<b><b>The award-winning, best-selling author of <i>Station Eleven</i> and <i>The Glass Hotel</i> returns with a novel of art, time, love, and plague that takes the reader from&nbsp;Vancouver Island&nbsp;in 1912 to a dark colony on the moon five hundred years later, unfurling a story of humanity across centuries and space.</b></b><br><br>Edwin St. Andrew&nbsp;is eighteen years old when he crosses the Atlantic by steamship, exiled from polite society following an ill-conceived diatribe at a dinner party. He enters the forest, spellbound by the beauty of the Canadian wilderness, and suddenly hears the notes of a violin echoing in an airship terminal&mdash;an experience that shocks him to his core.&nbsp;<br>&nbsp;<br>Two centuries later a famous writer named Olive Llewellyn&nbsp;is on a book tour. She&rsquo;s traveling all over Earth, but her home is&nbsp;the second moon colony, a place of white stone, spired towers, and artificial beauty. Within the text of Olive&rsquo;s best-selling pandemic novel lies a strange passage: a man plays his violin for change in the echoing corridor of an airship terminal as the trees of a forest rise around him.&nbsp;<br>&nbsp;<br>When Gaspery-Jacques Roberts, a detective in the black-skied Night City, is hired to investigate an anomaly in the North American wilderness, he uncovers a series of lives upended: The exiled son of an earl driven to madness, a writer trapped far from home as a pandemic ravages Earth, and a childhood friend from the Night City who, like Gaspery himself, has glimpsed the chance to do something extraordinary that will disrupt the timeline of the universe.<br>&nbsp;<br>A virtuoso performance that is as human and tender as it is intellectually playful, <i>Sea of Tranquility</i> is a novel of time travel and metaphysics that precisely captures the reality of our current moment.<br>&nbsp;
