What would happen if all electronics around the globe failed simultaneously? If our way of life could no longer continue on due to everything we know being stripped away? In the Restoration series, popular author, Terri Blackstock explores those possibilities.
Doug and his daughter, Deni, are on their way home from a trip to Washington DC when the world goes silent, and planes begin to drop from the sky. Are they under some sort of terrorist attack? As they struggle home to see how the rest of the family is, they find that Birmingham has changed drastically. The once safe southern town is now filled with crime, including a murderer in their own neighborhood. As the family struggles to survive, they must also figure out who they can trust and how to be a light for Christ in a world gone dark.
I've read a few of Terri Blackstock's other books, and while they were good, I think she out did herself with this novel! The story was creative and kept me on the edge of my seat, not to mention very well portrayed. The Branning family is one that we can all relate to. I loved reading about their struggle to step out of their comfort zone and put action into their faith! This series has an important message to all of us on living totally for God, even (or especially) when times are tough.
I will be getting the other books in this series soon to see what happens to the Brannings!
