I didn't realize this would be the first of a series until i was done and looking up the book in Goodreads. So I will definitely be on the lookout for the next one in the series. This is a very nice read. Once I started, I didn't want to put it down. Very inspirational book about the all electricity going out everywhere and follows one family hopes and fears about what is happening. There is problems going on in their neighborhood because of the outage, there is helping hands. It makes you wonder what you would do if this actually happens, or at least it did to me.
At the beginning of the book Deni and her Father, Doug, get off a plane and then another plane crashes, and not long after that another plane crashes. All the electric has gone out and no one knows why. Cars, watches, cellphones, and even game-boys don't work. Even brand new things that haven't been used go out as soon as they are turned on. The book follows Deni and her family through their up and down and shows how God is always there for you no matter what.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
New York Times best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts—and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.
The city of Birmingham, Alabama, is experiencing a massive blackout. Planes suddenly lose power and crash to the earth. Cars stall in the middle of the street and won't restart. Cell phones and the internet are dead. All communications are cut off. Is it a terrorist attack . . . or something far worse?
In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to a time before electricity, the Branning family faces a choice. Hoard their possessions to survive—or trust God to provide as they share their resources and hearts with those around them? Yesterday's world is gone and now all they’ve got is family and community. Like never before, they must rely on each other.
Especially since someone close by is a killer.
