Following a nuclear holocaust, Nathan Taylor and his family face grim choices in order to stay alive. Fleeing deadly radiation, plague and desperate men, Nathan, an army officer, leads his wife and their two teenage sons away from chaos and madness toward his ancestral home in Kentucky. 

Horrors lie in their path. From the prison struggling to maintain control of its inmates, to the desperadoes who enslave anyone who comes their way, even survival may cost Nathan his humanity...or that of his sons, Joshua and David. Nathan struggles to keep his family intact, but it requires making brutal choices. He wants to protect his sons, but knows they now must be deadly and cold at times.

Nathan's home has been spared from the worst of the destruction, but a larger conflict over scarce resources erupts. For the survivors to have any chance they will have to fight and the desperate journey has transformed young Joshua and David into men called upon to lead and sacrifice. Torn between harsh realities, and wanting to hold onto fleeting childhoods, they are often conflicted and angry about the roles thrust upon them. Much will depend on how Nathan and his sons respond to a madman and his military regime seeking to conquer the fledgling community they are helping to build.

GLIMMER OF HOPE is an epic tale of one family's endurance and triumph after tomorrow's apocalypse.


  • It had a chance.

    By Jory Colvin
    The story had the potential to be great. The characters were good. The story itself seems unfinished. The editing was also terrible.
  • Incredibly Long

    By Dab51555
    The novel started good. I thought that the premise sounded interesting. Then it got laden down. There were too many characters. The story line was out of a soap opera. The characters became boring. It ended POORLY! I do not recommend.
  • Well worth a read

    By Pfbjfxvh
    I’ve read dozens and dozens of apocalyptic novels and I’d put this up at the top of the list. A very well written book in a genre not always known for taut writing. Give it a read, you won’t be disappointed. I’m excited to read the next book in the series.

  • Awesome series

    By Pupppytearz
    Love the series so far! Even got the first two books free. Went to buy the third but I can’t get it on iBooks?! Doesn’t make sense as the third book seems to be the ONLY one of the series not available on iBooks. Very frustrating.
