Her home. Her parents. Her freedom. Gone. His dreams. His sister. Himself. Lost. Two people. One future. The economy crashed, the country is floundering, and Carrie Ashworth struggles to keep her siblings alive. She has two jobs in her newly-formed, newly-outlawed clan: grow crops to feed 36 people, and maintain contact with Oliver Simmons, their local patrolman. Carrie's life is almost perfect when Greg Pierce shows up. He's a man with the ambition to help them survive - a man determined to hate her.
"The story was wonderful and the acting made it better."
Six years ago, with the financial collapse of her country and the death of her parents, Carrie Ashworth swore to protect her siblings. She has fought to build a life for them in her illegal clan. Now home and recovering from a government-spread virus, she's ready to pursue a little happiness of her own - with Greg. Greg Pierce has no plan to join the growing rebellion or their "live free or die" mentality. Even after compulsory military service deepened his hatred of President Rigsby's regime, he wants nothing more than to leave it all behind and start a quiet life with Carrie.
Chicago is burning. A rebellion rises, but that's the least of Carrie's concerns. Patrolman Simmons is assigned new partners who threaten the security and secrecy of Carrie's clan. Tensions are high, lines are drawn, and Carrie feels a wedge growing between her and Greg.
