The Memory of Earth by Orson Scott Card -- 332 pages
The Oversoul must seek help from the people who can still receive visions and signals. One of those people are Nafai's father, and perhaps Nafai himself.
I found this book interesting and intriguing. In the city of Basilica women are the rulers, and men cannot own property inside the city. Some people said that they knew exactly what was going to happen, but I must not be that smart, because I was intrigued and pleasantly surprised at the turns in the plot.
The Memory of Earth is the first book in the Homecoming series. I listened to the audiobook on Overdrive.
