Book 2 of “The Great Death” series and the sequel to “Love and Family During the Great Death”.
A Post-Apocalyptic world unlike any other. Instead of banding together or fighting each other, instead the survivors find a world with few resources, little trust and no desire to intermingle. Fears of disease prevent survivors from reaching out for help. How does society survive if the survivors won’t participate?
Though dealing with drastic situations, this book isn’t as ‘bleak’ as the original. Reading the original book will help, but isn’t necessary, so if you couldn’t take Book 1 you’ll be OK resuming the story with this one.
Handy reference to look up any characters you don’t recognize. Only lists characters already displayed, but it’s generally better if you search for each name, so you won’t encounter any spoilers if you haven’t read everything yet.
