Two members of the Branning clan come home to Birmingham, Alabama, and everything electrical suddenly stops. Planes crash and highways clog with vehicles.
Few in the Brannings' upscale neighborhood are prepared to face the hardships of life without conveniences like running water and refrigerators. And someone among them will kill to keep their lifestyle. As neighbors scramble to provide for their families, several are found shot to death and robbed. The Brannings must choose to trust God in this crisis.
Blackstock's deep characterization hammers home the shock of this crisis, and her pacing keeps the reader riveted. But the ending, while exciting, employs stock elements that detract. (Oct., 352 pp., $14.99)
