Book two of the Strengthen What Remains series


About Through Many Fires

A Time to Endure is the second book in the Strengthen What Remains series. The first novel in the series soared to #10 on the Amazon Kindle science fiction post-apocalyptic list in August of 2013 and remained on it for the rest of the year. 

In Through Many Fires, Terrorists smuggle a nuclear bomb into Washington D.C. and detonate it during the State of the Union Address. Army veteran and congressional staffer Caden Westmore is in nearby Bethesda and watches as a mushroom cloud grows over the capital. The next day, as he drives away from the still burning city, he learns that another city has been destroyed and then another. America is under siege. Panic ensues and society starts to unravel.

In the second book, the nation’s economy teeters on the verge of collapse. The dollar plunges, inflation runs rampant, and the next civil war threatens to decimate the wounded country. In the face of tyranny, panic, and growing hunger, Major Caden Westmore struggles to keep his family and town together. But how can he save his community when the nation is collapsing around it?
