We done

Solid book, realistic and well paced. Enjoyable characters with a detailed landscape for you to imagine them struggling/surviving through. A couple of very minor editing mistakes, otherwise easy reading. The twists and turns that happened were surprises but nothing outlandish. Well done, I would happily read more of this series or additional books from this author. Thank you.

Great book

I enjoyed this book for several reasons. One there is less violence then most other books in the "doomsday" genre. Two the first person account from the main character allowed me to become a part of their family. Three the experiences of those characters and the lessons they learned can be carried into any anyone's household today.

Really an enjoyable book.

I enjoyed reading this book. It has a pretty realistic touch to it. A book where you can really relate to the characters. It has a religious twist to it which did not both e r me at all.

I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire, and moved to Los Angeles when I was nineteen years old. I worked in an industrial plant for ten years, and then started my own business doing computer work. I’ve been self-employed ever since, though not in the same field. These days, I do tax returns in the winter, and make and sell artisan cheese all summer. And I write.

In 1993, I went to Sri Lanka to
