Family. There is no stronger bond than that which ties us together to our family members. Not even the tight chains and iron confines of a raging, out-of-control pandemic.
Young Aiden, Lottie, and Izzy are overcome with grief and overwhelmed to have lost their single mother to the coronavirus, in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. At a loss of what to do, stressed, scared, and not wanting to go back to his abusive, alcoholic father whom they had left behind in his mother’s separation, Aiden convinces his sisters that it is time for them to strike out on their own, in the hope of staying together forever. As minors, and afraid of what might happen to them should the authorities place them into separate foster care, the sisters reluctantly agree to follow their brother’s plan. What follows is a harrowing and unexpected journey of off-the-grid hiding and survival on their own, as the three siblings seek out the solitary solace of the woods to begin a new life.
In Family Survival, author Susan Thayer Kelley takes readers along for the ride of these teens’ lives, as they journey out of grief and pain, attempting to lift their family life up from the ashes and ghosts of their past. But the road is long. And filled with uncertainty and danger.
