When the world ends, can love survive?
For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone means fighting for tomorrow is an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can't remember what it's like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda's biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.
When reports of a widespread, deadly "outbreak" begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can't outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy - an enemy who no longer remembers what it's like to be human.
Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you'd die for becomes the one who could destroy you?
Red Hill grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go until its stunning conclusion. This is #1 New York Times best-selling author Jamie McGuire at her unforgettable best.

Worse ending EVER!
I skimmed the reviews. I had full warning. The book is 9 hours 38 minutes long. I really enjoyed the first 9 hours. I thought, "these reviewers don't know what they're talking about! This is a fine book and quiet enjoyable." Then came the 38 minutes that completely, 100%, ruined the entire book. So much so, that I'm thinking about getting my credit back for a bad experience. It's as if someone tapped the author on the shoulder, said "um, this has gone on long enough. You need to wrap this up now." Instead of writing anymore about the love triangle, the author kills all of them! WHAT?!?!?! At exactly 9 hours, it was like "we went out on another clearing today. He died. Sorry." I thought my audio had skipped a few chapters or something! Then minutes later, the 2 little girls finally came walking/running up and in order to wrap up the other side of the love triangle, let's kill both of them off too. "They ran, he was bitten. She tried to save him, she was bitten." That's how much time was spent on it! All of the likable characters were killed off with absolutely no time spent. As I stated, it's like the author was in a hurry to end it and she most certainly did. And the only reason Ashley, the least competent one of the college kids, was allowed to live, was because Skeeter needed a love interest. Really? She's a teenager and he's like mid 30s. REALLY? Oh, and even better.....at the ending, after the city is bombed and it's poured ash from the sky for 6 straight days, a black helicopter lands in the front yard, black ops soldiers jump out and knock on the door. "We're looking for Skeeter." The lady from the church told them to look here for Skeeter. WHAT? Skeeter only came here after he found out Nate was there, well after the church scene. Yah, the ash parted in the sky and a black chopter lands in the yard, with black ops jumping from it. So unbelievable stupid!!!!
Either the author lost all interest in this book at hour 9 or she just handed it off to her assistant to finish. It was the oddest, snap of a finger, change I've ever seen in a writing style.
