A deadly virus has left Beth alone and afraid. She must leave her home with almost no supplies when she is attacked by a neighbor. Now forced to set out on the Appalachian Trail with only her backpack, two guns and a turkey carving knife. Will it be enough for one woman alone in the wilds?
On a mission to find safety and a place to survive, Beth finds others in an unlikely trio struggling to find a new life. A young girl, mute with eyes blue as glass, a convict with a rage against evil, and a dog left abandoned by the merciless virus. But . . . There are others on the trail. And they have more sinister motives. They’re on a mission, too – to take whatever they can from whomever they find. They won’t give up the chase until they get what they want. And they want everything.
