A saintly stepmother begins caring for her husband's 3 rotten teenager children right before a slow apocalypse begins. Her one-dimensional, Mother-Theresa-like good nature lasts and lasts for the entire book, despite having a nasty crone mother, her neighbor's wife being a cheating slut, and her new husband basically abandoning her with his 3 spoiled children to raise.
The apocalypse details that I read for were not there until maybe the last 1/10th of this novel, and it was in no way worth reading through the rest of this unrealistic tale of the Mother Theresa of the Apocalypse who never did one selfish thing ever in her whole life to get to them.

powerful and gripping. a slowly unspooling tragedy. a swan song perhaps for a way of living that cannot last.
