Lilith’s Brood by Octavia E. Butler
After nuclear war ravages the earth, headstrong widow Lilith Iyapo awakens hundreds of years later aboard a bizarre alien spacecraft. She has been resurrected by the Oankali, a race that abhors violence and heals organic manner by manipulating genes within their own bodies. The Oankali have restored earth’s environment and Lilith has been chosen to lead the first colony of human survivors. But are the Oankali truly humanity’s rescuers or its captors? A startling discovery about the Oankali pits Lilith against her fellow humans — and her own children.
