Birmingham has lost every bit of its power. The streets are jammed with cars that will not start, and the airport is engulfed in flames from all of the burning planes. Communications have gone silent, cell phones and computers, even radios.

During a crisis that takes the entire high-tech planet back to times before electricity, the Branning family is forced to make a choice. Are they going to hoard all of their belongings to survive, or to trust that God is going to provide for them while share their resources with those around them? The world of yesterday has gone. Community and family are the only things that remain, and the outage brings out the worst in some.

Where is their mom? The hunt for answers reveals a trail of murder and desperation. For the Brannings, a powerful new purpose that is able to transform their whole community, and themselves, above all.

The action and suspense and the character development continues in this sequel. The Brannings are growing and rely more on God this time around.

Readers found it fulfilling on a spiritual level to see how these people help each other out and use their faith to help them get through their situation.

A teen has been shot and there is a suspect sitting in jail. Mark Green, who is the son of a convicted killer, has already got a strike against him. Now he faces the wrath of Oak Hollow as a whole. The Branning family stands beside him while he fights to survive and to forgive.

This is another engaging and interesting novel, and as it gets closer to the end of the book, it amps up the action quite a bit.

While the world slowly yet surely emerges out of the crisis, the Brannings will face their toughest crisis to date. Is God going to require more out of them than they have already given so far? How are they going to keep their faith if God does not answer their prayers?

Once more, fans were glued to each of the pages, feeling annoyed, flinching, feel heartbreak, and starting to cry the whole way through. Terri Blackstock delivers a fantastic conclusion to this captivating series that kept readers’ attention the entire way through. It is a very well written series that really makes you wonder what people would really do if all the things we are blessed with were taken away and just how lucky we are to have what we do.
