Overview

James and his sister, Alisha, have argued most of their adult life regarding the Bible, the second coming of Christ, and the end of the world. But James knows that the time is near. He manages to get most of his loved ones to Papa's farm in New Hampshire, but his two nieces are away at school in different parts of the country. After hearing the warning sirens, James hurries his family across the dirt road and into the shelter he and his friend Peter have built. This, as James has known for months, will be their home for the next two years.

Living underground requires a whole new lifestyle for James and his family. Electricity is a laughable pastime and relying on a depleting stock of batteries wears on the family's shoulders. Additionally, Alisha's constant worry over her two daughters, who were away at school when the bomb was dropped, is only heightened by the continual empty static produced by the CB radios.

It is not until they have emerged from the shelter and seen the destruction all around them that they realize the enormity of the war. What is left of the once thriving United States? How will the survivors rebuild their society? And who is willing to travel across the country to bring home Alisha's daughters-if they're still alive?

Join author Elizabeth White as she returns to The Shelter at Papa's Farm in search of any redeeming stronghold on which to lay the groundwork for this, a destroyed but renewable world.

    James has a dream. In this dream he is told to build an underground shelter for his family because the world is about to end soon. But the problem is, his family does not agree with James, and he really has a difficult time trying to gather the family to the shelter at the farm. And this just adds fuel to the heated arguments James and his sister, Alisha, because the topic of the end of the world is something they have argued about most of their adult life. Then a bomb is dropped by an Iraqi madman, and at last the family believes what James has been telling them. But it a bit too late, so all don’t make it to the farm. The family that do gather at the shelter is there for over two years before they have a chance to try and contact those family members that did not make it to the shelter. Can you imagine being in one house like a shelter with so many family members, along with the animals and trees, plants, all of the food, as well as the other things you need to survive? Will this family survive these years in the shelter? And what happened to the family members that didn’t make it to the shelter with them at first?

    Author Elizabeth M. White creates a host of characters that have split outlooks on the Bible and the end of the world, creating a lot of chaos, and keeping the plot interesting enough to keep you reading until the end so that we can find out the fate of this family. The story goes pretty fast, and I read it in one day. Though this book is listed as Christian fiction, I do want to warn readers that throughout the book God’s name is used many times in vain, in several different ways. If you enjoy fast-paced thrill type books, and especially end of the world stories, you will enjoy this book. So why not pick up a copy today for your enjoyment?

    I sat down yesterday and read "The Shelter at Papa's Farm&q

    I sat down yesterday and read "The Shelter at Papa's Farm" from cover to cover, something I don't usually do. The story had me from the first chapter and left me wanted more at the end of each chapter. It is truly scary when you're forced to think about what could someday happen. The undying faith of the characters in the story was heartwarming. This is a definite read!

    This book really has you thinking "what if". The characters are likeable & the storyline is easy to follow. I was a little skeptical to start this book when I saw the bible references. BUT, it's not as religious as the first sentence in the overview makes it sound. It's more about how a family handles the situation they are put in. I had a hard time putting the book down & found myself wondering.....what's next for these characters?
