Review by: D.J. Butler on Aug. 25, 2012 :
Vivi lives in the Refuge, with a few other adults and lots of children. At night she and the others sneak out, to snatch other children out from under the noses of the alien invaders and their giant android troops. Despite the good work she does, Vivi feels out of place; the other adults in the Refuge are all specialists administrators or scientists or mechanics or skilled crafters. As far as she can tell, she only came into the Refuge on her husband's coattails, and she is anxious over her role in God's plan... for dealing with the alien invaders. Then a recovery mission gone wrong pushes everyone to the edge, and leads Vivi to learn what her own special gift is.

This is the second of three novellas by Angie Lofthouse, all accompanying her LDS sci-fi novel Defenders of the Covenant. As she does in Consecrated, the first novella, Lofthouse writes convincing ordinary saints, with ordinary saints' problems, transposed into a modern retelling of the War of the Worlds.
