Descripción del producto
When unattended environmental and economic crises lead to social breakdown, no one is safe.
In a night of fire and death, Lauren Olamina, the young daughter of a minister, loses her family and home and ventures out from their ravaged gated community into the unprotected American landscape.
But what begins as a fight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling vision of human destiny ... and the birth of a new faith.
