Rebecca Lund Belliston is the author of the bestselling LDS romantic suspense novels SADIE and AUGUSTINA and a new dystopian trilogy entitled CITIZENS OF LOGAN POND based five years after the financial collapse of America. Rebecca also composes religious and classical-style music. She lives in Michigan with her husband and five kids.
Rebecca Belliston has created a futuristic world where the economy crashes and the country is doing all it can to stay afloat. It brings to light the struggles and the bonds among a group of clan members as they rely on one another for survival as each person completes his or her own task for the clan. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy futuristic/dystopian novels, as well as a little bit of adventure and romance.
