A space colonization story about seeking independence and home rule in the face of corporate greed. Tribal women bind together in a war zone where they are discounted as not important enough to save or keep safe.
On Dolvia, Lt. Mike Shaw demands Dr. Greensboro’s doctoring skills at the hospital, forcing the closure of her bush clinic. She witnesses forced labor, forced migration, and the threat of an epidemic from bad water. She sees how tribal women–often wearing burkas–find solutions for saving the children in a conflict zone, and she commits to the their cause for Home Rule.
Brianna Miller is an isolated girl–a mixed-blood orphan–among the Dolviet tribes. With the lessons from Dr. Greensboro, the abuse from soldiers, the sisterhood among victims, Brianna prepares for a future she will choose for herself. But first she must travel offworld.
The Bush Clinic is vivid world-building at its best, as gripping as it is poignant. A wonderfully well written book for sci-fi fans everywhere. Without shying away from difficult subjects and emotions, the author weaves a tale that is fraught with hard decisions in the face of life's struggles. I would suggest that at the end, readers will ask deep questions about what they want to fight for! -- Books Go Social
