While still in darkness, the Brannings help to start a government system in their neighborhood, and establish a church and a school, but a new outbreak of murders threatens their work.
Now eight months into a global blackout, the residents of Oak Hollow are coping with the deep winter nights. But the struggle to survive can bring out the worst in a person--or a community.
A teenager has been shot and the suspect sits in jail. As the son of a convicted murderer, Mark Green already has one strike against him. Now he faces the wrath of all Oak Hollow--except for one person. Deni Branning has known Mark since high school and is convinced that he is no killer.
When Mark finds himself at large with a host of other prisoners released upon the unsuspecting community, Deni and her family attempt to help him find the person who really pulled the trigger. But clearing Mark's reputation is only part of his battle. Protecting the neighbors who ostracized him is just as difficult.
And forgiving them may be the hardest part of all.
