AS BIRTH RATES FALL GLOBALLY, NEW DYSTOPIAN NOVEL EXPLORES AN INFERTILE FUTURE
Essex, England – After a summer full of news about falling birth rates and changing populations, British novelist Marvin Amazon’s new release offers readers a dystopian world where humans are almost totally incapable of procreation.
The Children Who Time Lost, now available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book editions, is set in 2043. Only one woman, the American Rachel Harris, has given birth in thirty years. To prevent panic and keep the population from dwindling to nothing, global authorities offer a Lotto, and a few winners each week enter a time portal and bring back adopted children from the future. When Rachel wins the Lotto, she’s elated. Her world-famous daughter had died tragically the year before, and Rachel longs to be a mother again. But the baby she meets in 2108 carries a secret that will shatter Rachel’s reality and endanger everyone close to her. Rachel must race across time to save her life and her child, even as she discovers that nothing—and no one—are what they seem.
