James and his sister, Alisha, have argued most of their adult life regarding the Bible, the second coming of Christ, and the end of the world. But James knows that the time is near. He manages to get most of his loved ones to Papa's farm in New Hampshire, but his two nieces are away at school in different parts of the country. After hearing the warning sirens, James hurries his family across the dirt road and into the shelter he and his friend Peter have built. This, as James has known for months, will be their home for the next two years.Living underground requires a whole new lifestyle for James and his family. Electricity is a laughable pastime and relying on a depleting stock of batteries wears on the family's shoulders. Additionally, Alisha's constant worry over her two daughters, who were away at school when the bomb was dropped, is only heightened by the continual empty static produced by the CB radios.It is not until they have emerged from the shelter and seen the destruction all around them that they realize the enormity of the war. What is left of the once thriving United States? How will the survivors rebuild their society? And who is willing to travel across the country to bring home Alisha's daughters—if they're still alive?Join author Elizabeth White as she returns to The Shelter at Papa's Farm in search of any redeeming stronghold on which to lay the groundwork for this, a destroyed but renewable world.

My Review:

One Word: WOW

Author Elizabeth M. White took me from a regular family doing regular family things to an all out end of the time war torn blitz on the world. Right from the start the book held my attention. I loved how instead of "Chapter One and etc.", the book was mark as time. Example Summer 2011 or November 2014.

What goes on with in this book could begin here and now. If you believe, as I do that the Lords coming is soon at hand. Then this book is something that you also should read. I know it is fictional but any author that can help to open our eyes to see things that could happen, well they get my vote.

The characters within the pages seem real. I continually found myself thinking of my family and how would we deal with the "What Ifs". Made me realize that I should be more of a Christian Mother. To make sure my family makes the right choices and to know the Lord as their personal Savior. Each character plays so real within the confines of today's world.

As you know I try my best not to give out spoilers. But on the other hand I will link you to my Teaser Tuesday. It may not be a lot but it is a good one.

I try not to let any one thing decide my opinion on a book. I have checked out some other reviews of this book and mostly they are good. And by the way I only did this AFTER reading the book for myself. I love getting my hands on a book that not a lot of others have read. This book is an awesome, clean worded, down to reality, to not way out in another world. It has some mystery, love, good plot, great flow in reading.

Due to the above I honestly, whole heartedly can not wait to see what Author Elizabeth M. White does next. So for the reasons stated above I am happy to give a Breath of Life rating of:

Five Clock Rating!!!
