Millions are dead. Fear and panic have gripped the nation. An engrossing and emotionally gripping story of one family whose limits are tested to the extreme.
It began with a dead bird. Then state-wide school closure. Before long, the whole town is in lockdown and the Brooks family are quarantined in their own home - with a faceless enemy on their doorstep.
They must cope as best they can, battling hunger, cold and boredom.
But as the threat inches closer, and neighbour turns against neighbour, single mother Ann doesn't know who she can trust - including those taking refuge in her house.
With no end in sight, Ann knows that if she is to protect her daughters from untold danger, she must make impossible decisions in order to survive...

Review by Amsa1959
I read this one during a weekend. I just couldn´t put it down. A bird flu pandemic, a snow storm love, loss and choices are the ingredients. She shows us what it really could be like from a family point of view. Ann and her two girls are the center in the novel and we experience what happens thru her. It´s very well done.
