Just as The Last of the Just made Andre Schwarz-Bart world-famous for a novel that transcended conventional views of fiction, so does The Morning Star make a claim for uniqueness. Rescued from his papers by his widow, Simone, four years after his death, The Morning Star is the last word of a writer with a masterful and poignant sense of the past, present, and future. The story begins in the year 3000, in the aftermath of a nuclear war that has decimated our world. The Earth has died but a few orphaned children who have escaped the cataclysm find their way to the stars and immortality. The woman Linemarie belongs to the first generation of these transcendent citizens of the future, and she returns to Earth to study and explore her ancestral heritage. Blending history, religion, mysticism, and folklore with the author's personal connection to the past, in particular to the Holocaust, The Morning Star is both a vitally engrossing tale and a powerful recognition of the dark forces of history.
