Another dystopian novel about the Collapse of Government as we know it. Molly McClure is 16 and living in the year 2041. What might have been fun in the “good old days” before all the oil ran out, before the Collapse, becomes a travel adventure of survival. When health problems cause uncertainty for Molly’s family both in the United States and Canada, Molly must leave her isolated farming island in Canada for the very first time. The world that greets her is anything but welcoming. Food is scarce, crime is thriving and cities are abandoned and falling down. Everything is dangerous and trust is at a premium. Molly needs to grow up quickly and make tough decisions about who she can trust so that she can convince her grandparents to go back to Canada with her. The trip to bring her grandfather back as the island’s doctor becomes a rescue mission. She faces challenges at every turn including a dangerous crime organization.
The book is an easy read and draws you into the lives of its down to earth, resourceful characters. Will Molly be able to complete her missions? Will everyone remain safe? Read Restoring Harmony and find out.
