Editorial Reviews

Young actress Cassandra Morris gives a heartrending performance of Neena Gathering, by award-winning writer Valerie Nieman. Her euphonious voice creates a personal atmosphere for this apocalyptic tale, and her skilled delivery underscores Nieman’s gorgeous prose. America has been destroyed by chemical warfare. In this desolate landscape, Neena and her aunt attempt to start anew on an isolated West Virginia farm, but they face the threat of scavengers. One day her uncle returns, and in the midst of violence, Neena is forced to choose her destiny.

Publisher's Summary

Neena and her aunt, Maura, try to start a new life in a United States devastated by chemical warfare.

Not what I expected.

Teenage girl stays with odd herbalist aunt. Sinister brother comes to live with them. Throw in some pedophilia towards the end and I was done. Wish I could return it.
