A well written book by Denise R. Stephenson, deserving of the four and half star rating I gave it. Since I can't give it four and half stars on Amazon, it will be listed as four stars there. The story draws you in from the beginning. The death of Rebecca will startle you. Deaths continue to occur, yet the bacteria varies. The bacterial mutations progressed faster than the medical community could handle. Set in the near future, I believe that the book draws some of the facts from current events taking place on Earth right now. Life on earth is forced into change. Sealed in your home! Monitored to ensure survival of the human race! The authorities went to extreme lengths to stop the spread of the bacteria. A chilling tale that will make you think twice about shaking hands. Kissing, touching, and all other contact, including sex was forbidden!!!! These are the three main characters and everyday life:
Trevor- The enforcer, that punishes anyone breaking the rules. Rules are rules to Trevor, break them and pay the price.
Maggie- a young mother attempting to bring up her son in this isolated life. He knows of no one outside his home. It tortures her that she cannot touch his bare skin, and he will never know what it like to go outside and play.
Gary- a man that tasted love before the isolation, finds the closed world he's forced into, intolerable. He just can't live a solitary life..
