The City of Basilica has fallen. Now Wetchik, Nafai, and all their family must brave the desert wastes, and cross the wide continents to where Harmony's hidden spaceport lies silent, abandoned, waiting for the command to make the great interstellar ships ready for flight again.
But of these sixteen people, only a few have chosen their exile. The others, Rasa's spiteful daughters and their husbands; Wetchik's oldest son, Elemak, have been forced against their will. Their anger and hatreds will make the difficult journey harder.

“The Ships of Earth, third in Orson Scott Card's 'Homecoming Saga,' brings its ill-assorted band of pilgrim/refugees far from the previous book's civic strife. This is Card doing what he does best...he reaches for the heartstrings.” —Locus
“Readers of The Ships of Earth will find the book rising to Card's usual high level, with scenes of enormous power.” —The Chicago Sun-Times
