"The Company" by Chuck Graham

A meteorite crashes into the Earth and sets off a chain reaction of natural catastrophes that kill the majority of the planet - plant, animal, and man. Brigos Glen has been spared, but as darkness covers the sun, the people struggle to figure out a way to survive. Then they hear a voice ask, "Would you like some help?" And our story begins.

Brigos Glen is a normal community filled with normal people. As help arrives after the destruction of most of the Earth, the people learn to trust the "Yonders" to get them power so that they can get back to a sense of normalcy. Thinking they are alone, besides the Yonders, the Brigons don't consider what is over the mountains. As time passes, greed and disagreement lead to the one Company being split into factions. The "Plan" that had been given them is discarded by many. Sam is one man trying to follow the plan, always  wondering what he can do to help. As the problems persist and people forget, drastic measures are called for. This is the story of what happens when people are held to account and given another chance.

This book is an allegory meant to get Christians to look at how they act and what they do. If you have been to church and are a Christian, you will recognize the symbolism in the story. Mr. Graham wants Christians to see how they have deviated from God's plan, but that there is also a way back. It is an interesting story and I think many people will enjoy it. I received my free review copy for an honest review in the Litfuse Blog Tour.
