Renae White Crafts a Story of Hope and Survival Against the Backdrop of a War-Torn World
In her unforgettable debut in the world of literature, Renae White offers a startling glimpse into a world burning in a funeral pyre fueled by warfare, civil strife and social unrest. Resistance is ultimately a story of hope and survival unfolding in the bleak landscape of a world teetering on the brink of either progress or devastation.
The novel is set in the fictional city of Richmond, in Maine, after a war that left thousands dead and the world in pieces. The survivors of the global cataclysm went one of three ways. Some turned to the new government, offering their fealty to their new lords and hoped for the promised safety. Those who distrusted the new regime broke off from society, packing what they could in order to survive on their own. The third group of people walked away with a new cause and a death sentence. This small group formed the Resistance, men and women who did not believe in war and who actively opposed the government and their new laws. White, the compelling narrator, lets readers follow the members of the Resistance in their efforts to find hope, humanity and peace in a world engulfed by devastation and turmoil.
Heralding the arrival of a gifted voice in literature, Resistance works simultaneously as a dystopian vision of the future, an action-packed survival story and a cautionary tale that allows readers to probe into the enormously significant issue of war.
This book will be featured at the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 9 - 13, 2013.
