A FAMILY FIGHTS TO SURVIVE AS ENGLAND STARVES...
The coming winter was going to be a bad one - and not because of the weather.
Sixteen-year-old Barry Mortimer's life turns upside down when his father suddenly moves the family from their comfortable modern home in the city to a decaying old mansion on the outskirts of town. Strange and mysterious events follow.
Why isn't anyone allowed to visit their new home? What is Father doing in the basement and why is he keeping it a secret?
As rumors of skyrocketing prices and food shortages become a full-fledged economic meltdown, Barry's world begins to crumble. Can his family hold together as a nation collapses around them?
TERRIFYING BECAUSE IT COULD HAPPEN TOMORROW...
Written by award-winning author John Rowe Townsend, Noah's Castle tells the story of a family trying to survive a total collapse of the British economy. Money becomes worthless, unemployment skyrockets, and food and other goods become scarce.
As conditions worsen and people begin to starve, how do people react? When does law-and-order break down and civilized behavior end? How do people balance the needs of their family against those of society?
Noah's Castle examines these questions but doesn't provide easy answers, resulting in a thrilling and thought-provoking story of survival.
