When a cyber-terrorist shuts down all electrical and communication systems creating chaos across North America in the dead of winter, a farm family in Nova Scotia develops a far-reaching survival strategy that has astonishing results. Seven strangers with no where else to go are given refuge on the farm, bringing unresolved problems and prejudices with them. Episodes of fear, suspense, tragedy, joy and unconventional justice combine with the reality of everyday life on a farm to create an uplifting tale of coping in a greatly altered world, where everyone is forced by circumstances to rediscover the art of living, rather than making a living.
PLUS: The Buddy Book - Home at Last. A bonus story told by the family dog and how he came to live on the farm and became a hero too...a heartwarming story within a story for animal-lovers of all ages.
