Publisher's Summary

When a family camping trip takes a dark turn, how far will one mother go to keep her family safe?
Struggling with working-mother guilt, Marlene Greene hopes a camping trip in the forest will provide quality time with her three young children - until they see fires in the distance, columns of smoke distorting the sweeping view. Overnight, all communication with the outside world is lost.
Knowing something terrible has happened, Marlene suspects that the isolation of the remote campsite is all that's protecting her family. But the arrival of a lost boy reveals they are not alone in the woods, and as the unfolding disaster ravages the land, more youngsters seek refuge under her wing. The lives of her own children aren't the only ones at stake.
When their sanctuary is threatened, Marlene faces the mother of all dilemmas: Should she save her own kids or try to save them all?

Anti climactic

I agree with one previous review. If I had known it was a series, I wouldn't havre wasted my time. This book was anti-climactic and left you hanging off of a small retaining wall. (Easy to jump down without a thought, other than "what a waste of my time". I was shocked when it rather abruptly ended and went back on Amazon to see where I missed that this was a series, still couldn't obviously find where they revealed this information. I will not be running to grab the second book, if it ever comes out because I will easily forget the first.

Wow! What a listen!!

Loved it! when reading the description it was different to what I normally listen to, but as I have been struggling recently to find anything that keeps me interested I downloaded it anyway! I was not disappointed! kept me gripped the whole way through! every chapter was relevant to the story and there was no drawn out unnecessary stories or chapters. No chance of getting bored whilst listening to this, brilliant!
