Kyle Tait, having survived the harrowing, cross-country journey home to his family, must now struggle for existence in a post-EMP world that no one could have imagined just three short months prior.
Each day brings new challenges - how to fight the bitter cold, where to scavenge food for the table, and how to best fend off intruders and keep their community safe. As the cold, dark days of winter begin the slow transition to spring, the Tait family is faced with a challenge that dwarfs all others and threatens to shatter their already precarious grip on sanity. Kyle and Jennifer are once again forced to endure a trial that threatens the survival of each member of their family.
Follow Kyle, Jennifer, and the citizens of Deer Creek, Montana, as they plumb the depths of their resourcefulness, strength, endurance, and humanity while struggling together to survive the daunting days of winter.

This was really a perfect sequel to 77 Days in September; if you liked that book, you will like this one equally and for the same reasons. The author has a way of really stirring up my emotions like few others can. There was one character who gave me pause as his dialog came off very "preachy" (about prepping, not god). It seemed cheesy and scripted at first, but it didn't last long. Also, I do appreciate the author's intent with the sermon. I sure hope Mr. Gorham is hard at work on the next book!
THE NARRATOR WAS AWFUL. TO THE POINT WHERE I ALMOST COULD NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK. THIS STORY NEEDED KEVIN PIERCE OR Sean Runnette .....
MOREOVER, IT'S SAD WHEN THE FIRST BOOK IS GOOD, THE SEQUAL HAS SO MUCH POTENTIAL...... WHICH THIS BOOK DID.... AND THEN.....TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT...
THE STORY HAD TO MANY REALLY THIN PARTS..... THE "TRIAL" THAT KYLE WENT THROUGH IS AN EXAMPLE WHERE IT GOT WAY THIN, NOT BELIEVABLE..
ALSO, THE "MATH" JUST AINT THERE....THE AUTHOR MADE THE STORY REAL THIN WHEN ALL THE BELOVED ANIMALS WERE KILLED OFF... IF HE WOULD HAVE JUST STUCK TO 1 ANIMAL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BELIEVABLE AND BROUGHT THE STRONG SADNESS THE AUTHOR WAS LOOKING FOR. ALSO KYLE WAS WAY TO "TOUCHY FEELY" IN THIS BOOK...... SO MUCH EMPATHY IT WAS NOT BELIEVABLE.... IF THERE IS TO BE BOOK 3? PLEASE GET KEVIN PIERCE OR SEAN RUNNETTE.... AND DON'T TURN KYLE INTO A GIRLY MAN...
The first one was very good but because of narration I couldn't even finish this one. So breathy and overdramatic...terrible
I want a refund of my credit!!!!!
the narrator was so bad I almost deleted the book. it was painful. the plot had me on the edge of my seat for the most part which is why I completed the book but for the love of Pete, invest in a better narrator because I will not buy a book again with this guy.
The narrator is horrible! I wish I had listened to the reviews. I enjoyed the first book a lot, and was looking forward to listening to this one. I'm returning it.
Any other narrator would have made it better!
All of them...
I purchased this book after listening to 77 Days in September, which wasn't too bad. Daunting Days however was absolutely horrible. Didn't even seem like it was written by the same author... the writing was just awful....ridiculous and disappointing. Wouldn't recommend wasting your time even if it's free.
The narrators voice inflection and timing was not good
I recommend the series but just be prepared for the narrator to not be anywhere near as good as the first one. He was way way to dramatic in his reading and it actually got annoying at times. The story however is a great addition and follow-on from the 1st book. I strongly recommend it
Nothing. The story was nothing like Book 1 and the narration was as wooden as a toothpick factory.
Flat, uninspired. Sounded like it was being read from a teleprompter.
I simply cannot believe this is the same author from Book 1. The endless sections dealing with the "trial" was excruciatingly painful. The horrible narration didn't help but even a 5 star narrator couldn't put enough lipstick on this pig to make it decent.
