Matt Crawford speaks with New York Times bestselling author John Gilstrap about his book, Blue Fire. After Hell Day- a world war that shut down anything electronic and any communication, people are struggling to survive. What is left of the U.S government is struggling to be useful, and everyone must now live like they did in the 1800's. A one-time congressional representative Victoria Emerson has become a beacon of light in the small town of Ortho, West Virginia. As the towns leader she is struggling to balance protecting those in the town and still welcome those that need help. When a band of supposed National Guardsmen show up and intend to take Ortho's resources for their own, the town is put to the test. This is a great read that has many parallels to the world we live in today. It stirs quite a few questions in your mind and makes you wonder what you would do in these situations and who you would be in these difficult times.
