9780007529940: Memory of Water

The world has emerged from the Twilight Century, a hundred years of humanity striving to survive after rising seas and oil wars devastated entire countries. In New Qian, part of the Scandinavian Union, natural snow and ice now exist only in historical books. Fresh, untainted water is a precious resource, citizens' personal quotas strictly enforced by the armed water guards. Noria Katio is an apprentice tea master. When she turns seventeen, she is entrusted with a secret - the existence of a hidden freshwater spring nearby, preserved by her family for generations. But as Noria takes possession of the knowledge, she holds the fate of everyone she loves in her hands...

From the Back Cover:

The award-winning speculative debut novel, now in English for the first time!

In the far north of the Scandinavian Union, now occupied by the power state of New Qian, seventeen-year-old Noria Kaitio studies to become a tea master like her father. It is a position that holds great responsibility and a dangerous secret. Tea masters alone know the location of hidden water sources, including the natural spring that once provided water for her whole village. When Noria's father dies, the secret of the spring reaches the new military commander . . . and the power of the army is vast indeed. But the precious water reserve is not the only forbidden knowledge Noria possesses, and resistance is a fine line.

Threatened with imprisonment, and with her life at stake, Noria must make an excruciating, dangerous choice between knowledge and freedom.
