Noble Gadling has been prepping his family for every survivalist contingency—and moving them off-grid. But when a storm hits, and little Jackson is badly hurt, they seal their fates when they decide to operate on him at home in the family bunker.
The story hinges on the question: “What if being prepared for everything is not enough? It is about our primal fears: the problem of our legacy, the survival of our kin, the possibility that when we die…we die alone…
