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)
