by Sophie Littlefield

The end of the world was just the beginning.

Civilization has fallen, leaving California an unforgiving, decimated place. But Cass Dollar beat terrible odds to get her missing daughter back—she and Ruthie will be happy. Yet with the first winter, Cass is reminded that happiness is fleeting in Aftertime.
Ruthie retreats into silence. Flesh—eating Beaters still dominate the landscape. And Smoke, Cass’s lover and strength, departs on a quest for vengeance, one that may end him even if he returns.
The survivalist community Cass has planted roots in is breaking apart, too. Its leader, Dor, implores Cass to help him recover his own lost daughter, taken by the totalitarian Rebuilders. And soon Cass finds herself thrust into the dark heart of an organization promising humanity’s rebirth—at all costs. Bound to two men blazing divergent paths across a savage land, Cass must overcome the darkness in her wounded heart, or lose those she loves forever.

my thoughts~   While I was reading Rebirth, I caught myself holding my breathe, waiting to see what would happen next. I like how Ms. Littlefield has made Cass 'real'. Cass' alcholism is always in the forefront of her mind, right behind her daughter, Ruthie. Cass isn't perfect, she's made a lot of mistakes, and probably will continue to make them. But reading Rebirth left me wanting more. You know, as in the next book! Horizon comes out later this month, and hopefully another not to long after it!
