Shining sea : a novel / Anne Korkeakivi.

Shining sea : a novel / Anne Korkeakivi.
When Michael Gannon, war hero and devout Catholic, dies on the front lawn of their yellow house in California in 1962, his wife Barbara and their children must learn to manage without him. They find themselves charting paths they never anticipated, from the beaches of Southern California to the Woodstock rock festival, from London's gritty nightlife to Scotland's remote Inner Hebrides, from the dry heat of Arizona to the fertile farmland of Massachusetts. Told with cinematic sweep, Shining Sea is a profound depiction of the ripple effects of war, the passing down of memory, the making of myth, and the power of the ideal of heroism to lead us astray but also to keep us afloat. --

When town secrets are brought to light, this unlikely pair must decide where their beliefs?and hearts?truly align. --from back cover.

Shelby Sparks and Max Berkman are hiking above the Colorado Bend River in Texas when the night sky is filled with the aurora borealis. A beautiful sight, Shelby realizes that it also signals the end of life as they know it. A major solar flare is the only thing that would cause the aurora to be seen so far south, and such an event would destroy all modern technology--including electricity. What follows is a fight for survival as the town of Abney comes to terms with the fact that they must work together or perish. Can God protect them against nature's destructive force? Will neighboring towns work with them, or try to take what meager resources they have? And what of Shelby's son, Carter? How will she provide him with the insulin he needs to survive? As Deep Shadows stretch across the land, Shelby and Max will be pushed to their limits, where they'll discover if they have the faith and strength to become a part of the Remnant of Christ.
