Imagine that you wake one morning and everything you have come to know is gone. Your home and car, place of business, even loved ones, are all gone. How would you survive?
On leave from the U.S. Marine Corps, Jason Black considered himself fortunate the morning an unnatural catastrophic wind devastated Charlotte, North Carolina. Despite concerns for a distant fiance, Jason holes up with other survivors in the ruins of a warehouse. Among the survivors, Kelly “Rocky” López is an attractive, thirty something single mother determined to return to her Utah family.
With diminishing resources, the survivors send Jason and Rocky in search of rescue and the cause of the mysterious storm. Their dangerous trek leads across a demolished countryside and into perilous encounters with other survivors. Scrounging daily for food, water, and shelter, they attempt to survive in a world where necessities are luxuries and conflicts turn deadly.
A suspenseful tale of survival, tenacity and the power of the human spirit to overcome “Devastation.”
