Publisher's Summary

Ava's had a hard life, and it's about to get a whole lot tougher!
The deck is stacked against 29-year-old Ava. She’s a fighter, but she’s got trust issues and doesn’t always make the best decisions. Despite her natural beauty, she doesn’t score well in the self-esteem department. Her personal complications aren’t without merit, but America is on the verge of a second civil war, and Ava must pull it together if she wants to survive.
Ava has just lost her adoptive mother to cancer. Her fiancé broke off the engagement shortly after her mom got sick. She has no idea who her biological father is and her adoptive dad walked out on his family for the sweet young thing at the office 15 years ago. With such a long history of loss and abandonment, it’s understandable why she’s hesitant to put her faith in people, but now it’s affecting her relationship with God.
Meanwhile, the tentacles of the deep state have infiltrated every facet of American culture. The public education system, entertainment industry, and mainstream media have all been hijacked by a shadow government intent on fomenting a communist revolution in the United States. The antagonistic message of this agenda has poisoned the minds of America’s youth who are now convinced that capitalism and conservativism are responsible for all the ills of the world. Violent protest, widespread destruction, and politicians who insist on letting the disassociated vent their rage will bring America to her knees, threatening to decapitate the laws, principles, and values on which the country was founded.
Ava refuses to give into fear, but she simply cannot survive on her own. She must deal with her crisis of faith and learn to trust other people, or she’ll never make it through the bloodiest period of America’s history.

Excellent start to a new series

Mark Goodwin is one of my favorite authors. He did an excellent job creating “real”, well-thought out characters who are struggling with everyday problems and are faced with societal breakdown. I love the way he weaves faith and God into the story, and includes Bible verses to support his chapters. I also really enjoy the little tips he throws in there to teach us ways to become more prepared for hard times. I feel this book is timely and thought-provoking. I didn’t want to put it down.

This is the first book I listened to that was narrated by Stacey Glemboski. She did a great job hooking me into the story, keeping me entertained and enjoying her narration. She has a way of letting the material flow smoothly, at a consistent and realistic pace. Excellent performance.
