The style of this book is reminiscent of Pendell's The Great Bay: Chronicles of the Collapse for a few reasons: firstly, a large period of time is covered by updating the reader once every few decades (leaving lots of room for imagination between), and secondly the reader gets the sense of a world pulling itself together after a disaster and rebuilding. I think it's impressive that Pomeroy accomplished this in a relatively short novella.
A few criticisms: I found that one or two of the characters seemed to have no purpose and had almost no character development. But this is the first novella in a series, so these character's parts may not have come into play yet.
Also, the storyline really revolves around the steps they are taking to survive. There's very little human interaction that doesn't serve a purpose. Like...I'd like to see them have some fun sometimes. Or some drama on the side. Or maybe I've just been reading too much Stephen King...
In summary, good story that will keep you thinking and waiting in anticipation for the next one.
