Eli Horowitz & Chris Adrian - The New World

Sold out.

The New World is the story of a marriage. Dr. Jane Cotton is a pediatric surgeon; her husband, Jim, is a humanist chaplain. They are about to celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary when Jim suddenly collapses and dies. When Jane arrives at the hospital, she is horrified to find that her husband's head has been removed from his body. Only then does she discover that he secretly enrolled with a shadowy cryogenics company called Polaris.
Furious and grieving, Jane fights to reclaim Jim from Polaris. Revived in the future, Jim learns that he must sacrifice every memory of Jane if he wants to stay alive in the new world. Separated by centuries, each of them is challenged to choose between love and fear, intimacy and solitude, life and grief, and each will find an answer to the challenge that is surprising, harrowing, and ultimately beautiful.
