Time Like a Slow (Flowing) River?
April 29, 2004 9:12 AM   Subscribe

Some years ago, I read a book called something like "Time Like a Slow (Flowing?) River". It was the sequel to another book in which environmentally indignant aliens had conquered Earth to save it from humans and placed strict restrictions on earthlings until they became better environmental stewards. People had to travel by solar powered paddleboats, abandon fossil fuels, etc.
I have had no luck on Google or Amazon (and it's not this). Does anybody know the name or author of either of these books?

Could it be Judith Moffett, Time, Like an Ever-Rolling Stream (1992), sequel to The Ragged World (1991)?

There's an alien in Soul Like a River too (the alien is broccoli-shaped, even.) Is that it?

Thanks, this had been gently gnawing at the back of my brain for a while.
