Book Description

Naomi sees her first corpse in a Colorado Springs grocery store, but it won’t be her last. With devastating speed, a plague sweeps first the city, then the state, then the world, leaving less than 1% of the population to go on. Naomi, a gentle and sheltered housewife, finds herself fighting for survival in a world populated by desperate people, where might-makes-right, and mercy and compassion are in short supply. Fellow survivors Jack, a youth minister from Woodland Park; Grace, a 17-year-old high school student from Limon; and Naomi’s daughter Piper, a student at the University of Northern Colorado, all find themselves searching for a safe path forward…because it’s not just the world that has changed.

The plague that decimates the human race also pushes mankind into evolutionary change. Those who survive are different, profoundly so, in ways they are just beginning to comprehend. As Naomi struggles to protect and reunite what’s left of her family, she must also learn to understand and accept the changes in herself. In this strange new world, her survival, and the survival of those she loves, depends on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I could not put this book down! "What Survives ... August 1, 2014
I could not put this book down! "What Survives of Us" is both elegantly plotted and chillingly plausible, and the characters are so richly drawn I find myself wondering what they are up to days after finishing the book. The dialogue is powerful and real, and so skillfully done that you can hear the characters voices in your head as you read, picture their faces as they "speak". This book broke my heart, which I expected, given the subject matter, but it also made me laugh. Just outstanding!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story!!! August 1, 2014
An amazing story! I finished it in one sitting and was left craving more. Naomi is a vividly written character who fill stay in your mind long after you put the book down. So delightful to read a near future book without vampires or zombies. Rather this story focuses on real relationships and the impact of change upon those relationships. Treat yourself to a wonderful read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I so enjoyed this book August 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I so enjoyed this book! I was especially drawn to the female characters who are vividly written, strong, smart and courageous. Even in the most emotionally wrenching scenes, there is hope and a strong feeling of survival. I am very excited for the next book in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book August 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was simply amazing. I could not put it down, and read the entire book in one sitting. The author is definitely skilled at capturing attention, and pulling the reader into her world. I live in Colorado Springs, and therefore the book was eerie to me, as I know the places mentioned in the book. Brought tears to my eyes a few times, and it definitely stirred emotions! I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I cannot wait for book 2 (and more!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!!!! August 24, 2014
By autumn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
BEWARE!!!!! When you purchase this book, plan on not doing anything until you finish it... not only is this book witty, and thrilling but this book is completely captivating. Even after you put it down you wonder and wish you could do something for these characters. I have cried, laugh and gone to bed scared to death.... and it is only chapter 10... love love love this book!! It really is going to be the next big thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Roller Coaster August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the thousands of books I have read, nearly one a day since I was twelve, there are only a handful that have grabbed my emotions and dragged me through every experience. This is one, the added ability to make me empathize with multiple characters all at the same time is unmatched. This author is seriously Talented and I have never said that in a review before. Brava! When is the next?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new take on "End of the World as We Know It" September 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a refreshing view of what could happen after a catastrophic event. The characters are intriguing and well drawn out. While it is clear this book is a series, it does have a conclusion while many books in the genre (Post-Apocalyptic) just seem to stop and leave you hanging. Look forward to the next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars page turner August 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Makes you care about the characters and hope they come out okay. Ending was too abrupt. It felt like the story wasn't finished. I wanted to see them come together in some way that made sense. Left a lot to the imagination.
