In this opening volume of the Out of Barren Ground series, peace and purpose are rare commodities in a war-ravaged world. Everywhere there is famine, drought, pestilence, and hatred. Those people without their God are searching frantically, or are lost completely.
Rachel lives a lonely, dreary existence in the earth's final days, but while searching for a pure water source, her life changes dramatically. The dead ends she has followed in the past have yet to change anything. Until now. [from publisher's Web site]
