Publisher's Summary

Denise Armstrong is a nurse, mother, widow, and military veteran. Raised by prepper grandparents, she learned at an early age to watch national and world events closely. She has been paying close attention to the economy, both around the world and at home. As she sees signs in her own community of the slowing of the economy, she begins to experience premonitions of a cataclysm to come. 

Denise decides to use the resources available to her to help her friends and family weather whatever crisis she knows is coming. When Tom VanZant, a dear friend, confides he, too, is experiencing feelings of an impending catastrophe, they both realize it is time to hunker down to survive the storm about to occur. 

While they prepare, economic instability accelerates, violence escalates, and infrastructure deteriorates. Terrorist acts across the country and horrific brutality close to home further complicate this precarious situation. While safe (at least for the moment) on Denise’s farm, Denise, her family, and her friends can only wonder: Have they prepared enough to let them survive?

Great Book!

First off, there's a lot of characters, but if you just realize that and pick out the main characters, you'll be fine. I, personally, like the idea that there are people that have premonitions and prepare for them. I know that there are some that might find this hokey, premonitions, dreams, etc. But, it's a fiction book, so I believe Diana can get away with it.

Yes, there are a lot of lists involved with creating a place like described in the book. But, it does take a lot of to-do lists to do such a thing. So, I just dealt with it. Plus, I keep these things in the back of my mind, just in case.

Yes, the book comes from a conservative view of American life. Again, it's a book of fiction, so if you don't like such beliefs either don't buy this.....or maybe buy it because you need to see both sides of an issue....just saying.

Lastly, the plot line is not predictable, which I like because I don't want to figure out the end before the end comes. Oh, and the narrator may not be the best out there, but she was still good. Plus, I was able to differentiate one character from another which is important to me.

Good dystopian story

Lots of characters but I figured it's not necessary to recall everyone's kids names.
I don't know anything about warfare but I do know birds shot can't do too much damage when it falls back down to earth. Yep as kids we...
I ended up really enjoying the story.
I recommend it if you are a fan of pepper fiction.

Save your money

Starts out as someone basically reading an unbelievable shopping list for a couple of hours, then starts praising Trump. I quit when that happened. Save your money, buy something else.
