First COVID-19, now terrorist attacks. With the economy failing, the Feds employ every power of the Welfare and Surveillance State to control the populace. A key tool is PivPal, an indispensable smartphone used to track citizens. As civil liberties crumble, resistance is relegated to flyover country whose residents—derided as off-gridders—cling to the time-honored virtues of freedom, self-reliance, and charity.
Against this backdrop, Jenny Hernandez struggles to keep her rural church community nourished and safe.
