Yumi Fuller hasn't set foot in her parents' farm in Idaho since she ran away when she was fifteen. Now, twenty-five years later, the prodigal daughter - and now a struggling single mother of three - is returning home, desperate to win back the love of her ailing father and to confront her best friend and her conflicted past. Still spirited and rebellious, she finds a world - and her parents - changed beyond recognition.
In the weeks and months to come, Yumi breathes life back into her parents' farm. And with the arrival of a group of young anti-GM activists, the Seeds of Resistance, she finds herself caught up in a new revolution. All Over Creation is a moving exploration of the dichotomies of love and responsibility and a celebratory tale of the capacity for renewal that resides within us all.
