Blurb: Brody never forgot his first love, the one his pride made him lose. When the world dies almost overnight, he finds himself drawn back to his hometown and the love he left behind.

Hannah never thought the expression, ‘Not if you were the last man on earth’ would ever come back to haunt her, but when the world’s population is decimated by a deadly virus, she regrets her words, especially when Brody comes riding back into her life.

Against all odds they survived the plague, but will the mistakes of the past continue to tear them apart?

Review: I really enjoyed this story. What would we do if the world as we know it changed and all things techno stopped? How hard would it be for those who have no idea how to do without common convenience? To grow your own food, haul your own water, kill your own meat.

There are some who, after a short transition period, could adapt and make a life very easily…but there are also those who would struggle and the lack of knowledge and the evaporation of the life they have always known would have a very dramatic toll on them.

While I hope that some super bug does not ever take this type of toll on the world that we live in I also realize that it could happen. That is one of the things that really made this story pop for me. While I had a bit of reservation about a few of the things that for some reason still worked without electricity in the story, I also know that fiction is not always meant to be rational.

The fact that a well still operated without the electricity to power the pump and force water into the lines to fuel the home plumbing didn’t really detract from the story. All in all it was an enjoyable, HEAVY read that really made me think about things.

Well done Ms Langlais, you were able to take a very serious circumstance and turn it into an enjoyable read with ease. :)
