“What use,” he reasoned, “is survival at any cost … if we become little more than animals?”
Believing each other dead, Greg and Emmie fight to survive in a post-apocalyptic world of isolation, desperation and vigilantes. Their own child lost, Emmie traumatically conceives a child she hates. Even should they find each other, Emmie’s tragic secret and Greg’s drastic transformation threaten to destroy the foundations on which a new future together might be built in the harsh wilderness around them.
“I started reading “When Falls the Night” in the early afternoon and couldn’t put it down. It was a real page-turner! A mixture of science fiction, adventure, love story and mystery – just my sort of book. She doesn’t gloss over the more disturbing incidents with moments of darkness and deep emotion. Well done for a first publication. I look forward to the next.”

“When Falls the Night” is a book that any reader would find difficult to put down. Its storyline is riveting, and the heroes seem so real that one finds it difficult to leave them after turning the last page. It couldn’t have been published at a better time as it makes one question the meaning of what is happening in the world.

“This is an amazing book. Easy reading, enjoyable, riveting. Fictional, but real story, full of jewels how the near future may play out. Couldn’t put it down. Wouldn’t miss it for the world! Especially I recommend it for right now, at the end of historic 2020, as more than a ray of hopefulness and encouragement as we move into these uncharted times.”

There are lots of books about Dystopian futures with the main characters being rebels of the state but this book adds a further dimension with spiritual themes and expresses the importance of acceptance of others in non judgemental terms. It is a strong book with realistic characters that somehow descends into a romantic” happy ever after ending” on the last two pages…well worth reading!

I really enjoyed “When Falls The Night”. A tense, moving and compelling tale of two young people caught up in a post-apocalyptic world of tyranny and fear, with a happy ending where love, hope and kindness overcome. An encouragement not to despair, even in difficult times such as these. Well worth the read.
