What if the world ended overnight and everyone died but you? How would you cope? What would you do to take care of yourself when there is very little food left in your cupboard and no clean water coming out of your faucet? And you have a little dog who must eat and drink, too?
This is what happens to Mindy Lane, the heroine of But the Children Survived. One day, her grammy goes to the grocery store and never returns. Her parents are on vacation a thousand miles away, but the phone doesn't work and there is no way to communicate with them. Mindy doesn't know everyone in North America had died following the release of a biological weapon. She just knows she's running out of food and must decide what she'll do next.
One night, frightened by the prospect of strangers finding her alone, she hides with her grammy's little dog, Baby Girl, under a ramp attached to the mobile home she's occupying. She watches two men in hazmat suits go into her house and overhears them say they are looking for a child. As she huddles with Baby Girl under the ramp, her fear of discovery grows.
Who are the men and why are they looking for her? Why did Mindy survive when everyone else succumbed to the deadly poison? Why did Baby Girl live when all other animals perished? The answer lies in a mysterious plant found deep in the Brazilian rain forest.
Two scientists - one who desires to preserve life and one driven to destroy - travel to the rain forest seeking the woman who discovered the plant. Can they compel her to share her marvelous discovery?
But the Children Survived is the story of survival and endurance in the face of unspeakable odds.Will Mindy find her parents? Are they still alive? Listen to But the Children Survived, a mystery with many layers that will keep you engaged until the end.
But the Children Survived has been called "great science fiction" and "engrossing, entertaining, and a fun read" by readers on Amazon.
