Note: I feel the need to mention a point brought up by a few other reviewers of this series. There are mild "christian" references but no "preaching" or proselytizing and so the instances are practically unmentionable. Unlike some of the other reviews, I wasn't bothered or offended in the least. I prefer to keep an open mind, with my friends and in my reading choices. I am strong enough, within myself, that reading or listening to another's beliefs, or lack there of, doesn't affect my world view. I reiterate the instances are very very mild, occasional prayers to the christian God, not offensive in the least. Anyone that easily offended is probably too sheltered to be writing public reviews, in my opinion.
Within starting the first chapter of the second book I thought maybe it was a different author. I do not care for the language or the graphic sex. I was so disappointed.
Now Sarah and David and son John find themselves ill-equipped to survive in a farm economy with only minimal tools and supplies, the only plus being a few head of sheep, goats, and three ridable horses. Now they have to learn how to do without all the modern conveniences and become medieval crofters overnight, in a community that is sparsely populated and also ill-equipped to do without modern conveniences.
Some of the locals hate them for being Americans, blaming them for everything that's happened, every death, every disaster. Other locals seize the opportunity to become brigands and highwaymen, armed with modern firearms and evil intentions. Law and order has evaporated, and in its place is only the protection you can provide for yourself.
Isolated farmsteads are raided and their occupants left dead, or taken as slaves. The good people find that it's best to live in small communities for protection against these outlaws, but not everyone wants to move into such a group.
Now it's hunt, farm, garden...or die. The supplies one may have amassed by salvage or from one's own stores can be erased in moments by a fire, or the thieving outlaws. A full stomach in late summer will be replaced by starvation in late winter, as it just isn't possible to store enough food for the whole cold season.
I was enthralled by this trio of books and recommend getting the set of three, so that you don't have to wait to find out what happens next.
There are some very original turns of events that you simply won't see coming. This isn't just a "local survival" post-apocalyptic tale, but a look at how things could go backward in a hurry. Some parts of Great Britain have a partial recovery, but poor cousin Ireland is left to starve. Victorian-style factories return, complete with child labor and slavery, and so does white slavery. Women are chattel, property of the man with a gun.
In this world there are only victims and survivors, and at any moment, one can be swapped for the other. Those who seem like friends can turn on you in a heartbeat, or manipulate the situation to suit themselves.
A love story, a disaster story, a survival story. The woman who is afraid of everything now has to make it in a world where there is everything to be afraid of.

My biggest laugh was when Pound Notes were mentioned. There haven't been pound notes since 1984.
It is quite clear to me that the author has never been to England, Wales or Ireland - or, if she has - then I really don't know where she was.
The books are not well thought out and caused me to contemplate reading the last chapter first. My advice to the author is try again but write about a subject that you know.
How ever it was worth reading. Not sure if it will continue to hold my interest as the series progresses. It looks like there might be 10 books.
I found them all to be enjoyable, and intend to finish the series.
