Publisher's Summary

Technology is a thing of the past as a power outage covers the globe.

One family struggles to do what's right when so much is going wrong.

Best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if series in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts, and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.

An era unlike any in modern civilization is descending without lights, electronics, running water, or automobiles. As a global blackout lengthens into months, the neighbors of Oak Hollow grapple with a chilling realization: The power may never return.

Survival has become a lifestyle. When two young thieves break into the Brannings' home and clean out the food in their pantry, Jeff Branning tracks them to a filthy apartment and discovers a family of children living alone, stealing to stay alive. Where is their mother? The search for answers uncovers a trail of desperation and murder, and for the Brannings, a powerful new purpose that can transform their entire community, and above all, themselves.

Great Story, Powerful Message

I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. I like the different narrator better, and I thought the story was much more emotionally gripping. I was also challenged by the message, and spent some time soul searching about how I would react in similar circumstances. Christian fiction at it's best!

Liked it.

I enjoyed this book, even though I really wanted to choke one particular character(no spoilers). I think many of us would be whinny and unappreciative, when put in similar circumstances. Overall a pretty good book and series.

Surviving without Electricity

This is the second book in a series. A pulsar has somehow affected all power on the planet Earth and every electronic device is rendered useless. The book follows the continuing struggle of a family and the surrounding community, how they survive and keep their sanity. Very intriguing subject.

Good Christian Story

Does an excellent job of explaining the importance of dating and marriage and being equally yoked. Also shows what we all should be doing as parts of the body of Christ in helping unbelievers. Excellent story line with mystery and intrigue.
