Elizabeth Franklin is a young woman, a Zealous Christian, and most importantly, a fervently patriotic Member of the Incorporated States of America, a country ruled by the corporations to whom it is indebted. Raised as the youngest daughter in a strictly traditional family, her key goals are to successfully graduate from the Christian Schooling Network and begin a family of her own.
Before her senior year, however, she is confronted with a tragic loss that calls into question not only her inflexibility of Faith, but the weapons she has used to fight for it. Rather than shirk from this difficult challenge she rises to it, making it into an opportunity to use Love to transform her community for the better. Little does she realize that this quest is merely the first step in teaching her how to help her fellow Americans use Love to transform their own communities, and in doing so, bring about the Rebirth of their Nation.
