Deep Shadows (The Remnant)
Life in Abney, Texas is predictable and safe--until the night a massive solar flare wipes out all modern technology. Shelby Sparks, romance novelist and single mom, had one goal: to provide for her diabetic son and prepare him for the world beyond high school. In the wake of this global disaster, her mission hasn't changed. Only now, medication is a priceless commodity and the future resembles an apocalyptic nightmare. Max Berkman and Shelby were once sweethearts, but he lost his chance at claiming her heart years ago. When the abrupt loss of power ushers him into a leadership role, advising the mayor and organizing aid for those in need, he rises to the occasion. But his highest priority--to keep Shelby and her son safe--could prove to be the biggest challenge of all. As the brilliant northern lights give way to deep shadows, only one rule remains: Find a way to survive. In Deep Shadows, the first of an eerily plausible dystopian series, Vannetta Chapman introduces an endearing cast of characters to a familiar world thrown into chaos.
This is a story that is first and foremost about the grace and provision of God. He’s trustworthy even in the most dire of situations. My hope is that when you finish reading it, you’ll buy an emergency radio, make sure you have basic staples in your pantry, and then sleep well--knowing that God can and will provide.
Why the author wrote this book:
Shen my publisher (Harvest House) asked me “If you could write absolutely anything, what would it be” I jumped at the chance to write a dystopian novel. It’s a genre that has always fascinated me. I love a good survival story! As a reader, I put myself in the character’s place and wonder if I’d be smart enough, brave enough, faithful enough to survive. I wanted to write that story, that scenario, from the perspective of someone with a Christian faith.
