Publisher's Summary

Seven years ago, a chemical spill brought the U.S. Army to rural Penn County, Iowa, where soldiers established a long-term, medically maintained quarantine. Officially, it’s called the PennCo Containment Area. But to the people trapped inside, their bodies tainted with chemicals that give off a sweet smell, it’s known simply as Flowertown.
The quarantine was supposed to save their lives, but many of the survivors have grown suspicious of the government’s real motives. But not Ellie Cauley - her rage long ago burned down to hard, cynical pessimism. When a series of deadly events forces Ellie out of her apathy, she must prepare to face an enemy powerful enough to unleash her greatest nightmare.

What a surprise

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's a complicated book with complicated characters. Nothing is easy in Flowertown.

What did you like best about this story?

The book evolved in such an unexpected way. I was increasingly drawn into the story and the characters' lives.

What about Tanya Eby???s performance did you like?

Her voice is very pleasing and she does a great job of giving the characters emotion and dimension without being overly dramatic.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Nothing's easy in Flowertown.

Very Entertaining --

Any additional comments?

Sometimes we get caught up in finding books that will rivet us, or leave us with some insight within ourselves. But books just need to tell a story and entertain, and this one does both quite well. It was well read and had great dialogue that actually made me chuckle a couple times. The writing had hints of Philip K. Dick and wove a very intriguing story.
