After the plague, Jenny’s father moved their family into an old missile silo on the Great Plains. Away from population centers, protected by their shelter, they’ve remained safe from the marauding gangs, but it’s a life requiring constant vigilance.

When a family in need of help stumbles across them, Jenny’s first instinct is to do what she can, despite all of her father’s warnings that people can’t be trusted.

She’s prepared to bet her home and her family’s lives to prove there are still some good people left, but will it cost her everything?
