Readers who have experienced the horrors of devistating hurricanes can relate to Claire in "Sanctuary". She leaves a bomb shelter or storm celler to discover a decimated world devoid of humans, animals, and plants. Mountains of debris are all that remain of cities. No electricity, running water, shelter, food or clothing similar to the aftermath of a tornado or hurricane. "Sanctuary" is a story of survival, of learning to care for basic needs, and the determenation to make a new civilization under God that doesn't repeaat the political and immoral past.
