It’s 1973 and Will Ross, a divorced American geologist, has signed on to work on a troubled dam in a remote, rugged part of Turkey. Due to his ex-wife's advancing alcoholism, he takes his children to Turkey for their usual two-week stint of shared custody. He doesn't share that he has no plans to send them home. Alongside these emotional conflicts, he, his children, and everyone else involved in the dam face powerful external forces, including landslides and earthquakes. Science can help them understand those forces and engineering can help control them, but each character gradually comes to realize that the landscape they stand upon, and the landscapes of their lives, will shift and shake regardless of the choices they make. The question, then, is: how will they respond?

D. J. Green is a writer, geologist, and sailor. No More Empty Spaces is her first novel. She lives near the Sandia Mountains in Placitas, New Mexico, and cruises the Salish Sea on her sailboat during the summers. More at https://www.geologistwriter.com/.
