Better Lands Publisher's summary

The spring of 2024 struggles after the chaos of a four-year pandemic bestowed upon it. Two-thirds of the breathing population and all modes of technology no longer exist. 

After losing her parents, home, and privileged life, 16-year-old Rosa finds refuge in a tent community along the shores of Lake Champlain, Vermont. She becomes not only a protector of her living arrangements and those near her, but a visionary leader among the thousands of survivors. 

After Rosa discovers some land in Kentucky rumored to be virus-free, she takes hundreds of folks with her on a 45-day tempestuous foot journey to the better lands. Along the way, they experience brutal encounters that change all their lives and their outlook on survival. Among the many who join, along the way, are displaced soldiers and motorcycle club members. 

More controversies arise, friendships develop, new leaders surface, unexpected romantic relationships emerge, tempers heat up, disloyalty erupts, all while death looms around them. A third wave of the virus threatens to strike. 

Better Lands: The Discoveries is the first in a five-book series about human resilience and hope for survivors of a dying world. The series follows them on the journey to the better lands, where they hope to be free from the deadly virus. Will they get there before the third-wave attacks? Will they be safe in the better lands?
