Now that their latest battle is over, the religious residents of Blister Creek are dealing with their losses and trying to heal - physically and spiritually. Their leader, Jacob Christianson, now feels the full burden of the responsibility and finds himself at a crossroads: keep the believers isolated, or see what lies beyond Blister Creek's borders. In a world still enmeshed in war, famine, and destruction, wool blankets and powdered milk are the new currency. Fortunately, the devout community has made all the necessary preparations to ensure their own survival. But dangerous new challenges rise around Blister Creek: Squatters at the reservoir seek to take the residents' rations, a rogue government operative is trying to limit access to supplies, and a wave of fanaticism sweeping through the community is threatening to divide the followers. In the final gripping installment of the Righteous series, Jacob must decide the future of his flock - and just how much he is willing to sacrifice.
