"When it was quiet, I didn't have to worry about a monster trying to make me its lunch. I did, however, have to worry about my wandering thoughts, and I'd have a different monster on my hands if I let them wander too far."

A virus has erupted, turning loved ones into mindless, ravenous, killers. While the rest of the world plummets into madness, Kathryn Johnson seizes an unique opportunity. She runs from the hell she has lived in all her life, disappearing into the trees of Northern Georgia where she's accompanied solely by her thoughts. Little does Kathryn know she hasn't escaped Hell, but rather swapped one for another. In a moment of untampered curiosity, she stumbles upon a group that won't take no for an answer. Through the people of this group, Kathryn finds herself examining the walls she's kept herself locked behind, and an important question from her past will keep resurfacing, demanding to finally be answered after a lifetime of unknowns.

yes... time to read this beautiful story once more, after 6 months of not reading.
This is one of the best Prologues I have ever read. Great job!
When words are so powerful you relate to them exactly, even though you've never been in a situation so extreme and moralistically challenging.

You have a gift to write, giving the words the power they deserve. You make them raw, natural and truthful. I'm really looking forward to this story
