The Branning family is slowly learning how to live without electronics and other machinery. Scientists have determined that this loss may be permanent due to low-level radiation from a pulsar. Their community has banded together like never before, to dig a well and provide enough food and water for everyone.

When some young children break into the Branning home, the family follows them and discovers that they are living alone in horrific conditions. The Brannings take them in, but everything is a huge struggle.

Blackstock's second Restoration novel again takes readers into an unfamiliar but believable world without power. The Branning family is endearing, yet definitely flawed. Hard work characterizes their lives. However, God's provision is fully shown in every circumstance. (Jul., 352 pp., $14.99)
