Kayla Meadows' life, with a wonderful husband and great career, couldn't be more perfect. But when a routine flight into Dallas goes horribly wrong, her fate and the fate of the others she meets is left in jeopardy. Someone has set off an EMP device, shutting down the entire power grid, including communications and all motorized transportation. Chaos has ensued, and now Kayla must confront her deepest fears as she struggles to get home in an increasingly hostile environment. And it's not only her fears that she must deal with, but the anxieties and doubts of those she suddenly finds herself responsible for. Written with unbounded intelligence and seen from a uniquely female perspective, this is a novel about pushing the boundaries of fear, adapting to life in an uncertain world, and finding faith in the face of raw ambition and power. Kayla has never truly been on her own before and now faces a nearly 200 mile trek on foot through what's quickly becoming hostile territory. Joe and Monica, a couple thrust upon Kayla, don't want to face up to the new reality. Mike, a teenager who was home alone when the event occurred, is looking for adventure. And Jim and his crew don't want to rock the boat, even after they become aware of the sinister plot behind the catastrophe.

About N Sieffert Phd
Dr. Sieffert has always been an avid reader, enjoying many genres. This is evident in her writing as well, since she has published both fiction and non-fiction, and even children's books. Her fiction novels span the genres from suspense to science fiction to family saga. Her children's books were started because she wanted to ensure that her own grandchildren were introduced to Christianity in a clear and systematic way. And she wanted them to easily defend their faith, too! This leads to the subject of her doctorate, which is in Apologetics (making a defense). Sieffert feels strongly that all Christians should not only know what they believe, but be able to defend it. Her own faith grew by leaps and bounds during this time of study. She recommends it for all Christians. She and her husband of nearly 33 years have become increasingly aware of the issues in America, and have begun their own preparations to survive and be prepared to help others, should a catastrophe of some kind occur. It was this preparation which has led to her latest novel about survival in a hostile environment. She and her husband live on a very small but productive farm outside of Dallas, Texas, where they raise chickens, goats and pigs, and are teaching their children and grandchildren how to live more independently.
