Decades after the fires of the nuclear bombs dropped have stopped burning, a new society has formed. Living between the concrete blocks and smoking factories, Ve Klein tries to make a life for herself in the Nation that formed from the ashes.
Orphaned since she was a little girl and never having been assigned a husband by the Nation, Ve struggles to not only find her place in the world, but to survive among the separate communities and ranks of the Nation. The nuclear winter is harsh, the factory work even harder. Food is scarce and traitors to the Nation are handled with an iron fist.
Ve counts her blessings since she has a job and a roof over her head. As the days pass by through a horrible nuclear winter, her future changes drastically when somebody close to her comes to an unexcepted decision with big consequences. She is forced to choose between the only people she has ever called family before or a new, prosperous life within the Nation.
“A scarily realistic portrayal of life “after the bombs” that will terrify you and haunt you. Ve’s strong will carries her through the challenges as she tries to make a life in this post-apocalyptic wasteland.”

About Elyzabeth Johanna
So nice of you to take a look at my book…
…oh you are wondering who I am?
Well, my name is Ely! I am a young aspiring writer from the Netherlands. Ever since I was a young girl I have written stories and wanted to be a writer. When I am not writing, I work a day job in hospitality or you can find me on a plane to travel somewhere.
I once wrote this book while on holiday in Germany I am sure was a masterpiece, however our local liberary wouldn’t put 7 stapled together papers on their shelves. Bummer.
But here I am not and I am so excited to share my books with you! I love to hear from you, whatever you have to say, feedback you have or if you just want to have a chat. Feel free to contact me any time!
