A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stand in its path.
Amelia Bell is thrust into every mother's worst nightmare. A child who is fatally ill and no one knows of a vaccine that will cure him. Her son was one of the first infected with the virus that changed life and the world as we know it. Her son transformed into a monster with a ravenous appetite for human flesh.
Believing he will become healthier if she feeds him what he craves, she enlists the help of her alter ego "Mrs. Kim" to provide what he desires.
Mrs. Kim is first introduced in the novel "Winter's Salvation." Both stories take place simultaneously, and it is not necessary to read one before the other.
