I couldn't finish it. The book just moved a little too slowly for my tastes. The terrorist incident leading to the collapse didn't occur until almost the halfway point of the book. Everything up until then was about the lead character's transition to country living and her Christian dating adventures. Some may like this one, but I didn't.
