The story of an American family trying to survive the beginnings of the second civil war, in the not-too-distant future.

The existence of two simultaneous presidents has split the country along ideological lines. The protests are becoming violent. Sections of the country have formed their own militias, along with the militias of the two warring parties. In the midst of shortages of food and other necessities, gangs and thugs are terrorizing formerly safe neighborhoods. Realizing that it is no longer safe to remain in their home, Mike McNerney decides to pack the camper and flee to Canada with his wife, Marie, and disabled teenage daughter, Elly. 

Unfortunately, everyone else has the same idea.

Critic reviews

"Once I started reading, I could not put down this well-written and compelling short novel. Clayton’s premise is chillingly realistic. The book does not focus on the politics, but instead focuses on regular Americans who not long before led totally normal lives, and who are quickly turned into refugees as they try to escape the crime and violence taking over the country." (Donna Gielow McFarland)

Intriguing story - pulls you in.

What an interesting story - twists and turns - didn't want to stop listening to hear what happens next! Well done by both author and narrator! The narrator pulls you into the action and makes the characters seem very real. I don't normally listen to mysteries, but I really enjoyed this - it was different! with a lot of character development. Recommend. Nice length - was perfect for a long drive.
