Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The thrilling fourth companion novel to THE GIVER which inspired the dystopian genre and is soon to be a major motion picture starring Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions don't exist. That she had become a Vessel. That she had carried a Product. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire's son is out there, a young boy now. She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice. The startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry's award-winning epic series THE GIVER QUARTET culminates in a final clash between good and evil.
Companion book to: The Giver, Gathering blue, and Messenger.
