What Will YOU Do When the US is Invaded?
Survival of the Sparrows a startlingly plausible tale for 2018
Author Pete Conrad on his inspiration:
Originally from Haverhill, MA and now a resident of Dover, NH, Conrad holds a degree in English, Literature and Cultural Studies and is an accomplished bass guitarist. Pete has written screenplays for this and each of his other novels, The Arbiters, Going Home, and The Suicide Flowers. Last year, a short film version of The Suicide Flowers hit the film festival circuit, sparking the interest of well-known filmmakers.
In Survival of the Sparrows, May and Winston Sparrow live in rural Georgia, directly on the PLA's route to sack Atlanta as part of an even grander plan. Married fifty years, they have gathered enough supplies for a few weeks as they prepare to hide behind a false wall inside their small barn. To their horror, instead of just passing through town, the PLA converts their property into a headquarters, and Winston and May's secret sanctuary becomes an unwelcome front row seat to the atrocities of war.
As their supplies begin to dwindle, Winston ventures out to confront a dangerous new world in search of food and water. His excursions find him defending himself, helping others, and in an unlikely turn of events, even befriending an enemy soldier. When the threat of large-scale annihilation looms and the U.S. Army presses Winston back into military service, he is forced to rely on the skills he honed during the Vietnam War, or risk losing it all.
Can the Sparrows withstand the unthinkable?
Five stars from Readers' Favorite: "A chillingly frightening reminder of just how fragile our world order truly is. Fast-paced, with just the right amount of violence, tempered by the true spirit of human kindness and understanding. Conrad has hit upon a realistic scenario that was both believable and riveting to read."
