Présentation de l'éditeur

When Matt and Sarah Woodson take a much-needed vacation with their ten-year old son, John, their intention is to find a relaxing, remote spot to take a break from the artificial stimulation of their busy world back in Jacksonville, Florida. What happens within hours of settling in to their rural, rustic little cottage in a far-flung spot on the coast of Ireland is an international incident that leaves the family stranded and dependent on themselves for their survival. Facing starvation, as well as looters and opportunists, they learn the hard way the important things in life. Can a family skilled only in modern day suburbia and corporate workplaces learn to survive when the world is flung back a hundred years? When there is no internet, no telephones, no electricity and no cars? And when every person near them is desperate to survive at any cost?

Homesteading Fiction 29 août 2012
Par Beth Wade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What would you do if you were trapped in a cottage in Ireland for months, without power or technology, while society began crumbling around you? Susan Kiernan-Lewis asks this question through the lens of a high-strung mother to a teen boy. And the answer is pretty much what you'd expect: you survive, you learn how to homestead, you build community with your neighbors, and you sprout some impressive tactical skills when it comes to protecting your own.

I am frustrated to report that I didn't relate to any of the characters in the book, which made it difficult to get into. Maybe I'm unique in that- I'm not a mom, I'm not a Christian, I'm not high-strung or tech-dependent, and I'm not savage and ruthless like the bad guys in the story. I do appreciate the level of detail she put into it, with regard to all the multiple aspects of homesteading, with the chickens and goat and sheep and horses, especially the small things like how do you make wool, and oh yes, winter is brutal. The main character's letters home read like actual diaries from the 1800s pioneer women, which I'm sure was intended.

While it didn't grip me or give me new ideas, it did make me long for a homestead of my own (with a Joy of Cooking book and a sourdough starter, of course).

Powerful! 3 août 2012
Par Sheila Gallagher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wow! What a powerful novel. Fear of Falling has the Woodson family going to Ireland for vacation. They are going to stay at a rental cottage and drive around Ireland for 10 days. They get to the rental cottage and an attack occurs knocking out all power and technology. Without the modern conveniences they are so accustomed to using and owning, how will they survive?

Fear of Falling tells the story of a vacation that becomes a survival life style. Matt and Sarah have allowed their relationship to diminish, putting their son and careers ahead of each other. Both hope this vacation will allow them to find the intimacy that has fallen away from them. Susan Kieran-Lewis focuses on both Matt and Sarah, with a little more emphasis on Sarah. She made me strongly identify with Sarah but I also saw Matt's point of view, his questions, and doubts.

I loved John, their son. He views all this as a grand adventure--horses, puppies, goats, sheep, guns. Every thing that happens is new to him. He meets it with wide-eyed wonder. John wants to try it all because when they get home he will not be able to do these things because of the way they live. John is courageous and resilient. He also grows up and learns the importance of working together as a family. He learns what it is to worry and to have hope dashed. He learns to be strong for others.

Matt is a good foil for Sarah. He is calm. He is the voice of reason when her fears get the best of her. She has, in the past, either fallen apart or become a control freak when the going got rough. When she lets her fears run rampant it is Matt or the thought of Matt that brings her back to herself. As they realize they will not be going home for some time after the crisis, Sarah begins to work on how they will survive. Matt has the knowledge and skills necessary for him to survive and see that his family survives. Yes, he does have much to learn but he listens to others and tries to do what he is able to do. He learns what it means to help others and rely on others for their help or knowledge. He truly is a humble man.

Sarah has to discover what she has inside, not just the physical skills and knowledge but the emotional and spiritual skills and knowledge that lay buried in her. She is hesitant at first. She allows her fears to take over her life for a while at the beginning of the crisis. It is as she uses the skills and knowledge and learns to accept help from others that she discovers her need for God during these difficult times. Her acknowledgement of God and his help is done in baby steps. She starts praying more, working up to letting God do what He needs to do. She questions her relationship with God but finally gives up trying to run it and learns what His will is for her and her family.

Sarah learns that there are times when she must rely on others such as her neighbors Deidre and Seamus. They are an elderly couple who live several miles down the road and have much to teach her, Matt, and John. They are there for her in so many ways. She also learns to rely and trust Mike Donovan and his son Gavin and their extended family. While there is little humor in this tale, the scene between she and Mike when he discovers she really is like American movies that brought a smile to my face. I think it is true.

Fear of Falling also made me question myself. Could I be strong and resilient like Sarah? Could I do what I had to do to survive? Do I have the knowledge and skills needed to be like Sarah? Would I do what Sarah did to ensure her and her family's survival? Fear of Falling made me think. Do I as a American think I am entitled to the best of everything? Is that part of what makes Americans American? There are a lot of questions that came to me as I read. I'm not sure I have the answers.

Fear of Falling is not a light read. It is not a book you can walk away from without, if not being changed, at least questioning what would you do. How would you feel? I suspect Fear of Falling will remain with me long after I have closed the cover and moved on to other reads. It is that powerful a work.

WOW!! What a great opening line!! 1 juin 2012
Par bettysunflower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"The bad thing happened on the second day of their vacation". Wow!! What an opening line. One to ensure the readers attention. It got mine. Sarah and her family were in Ireland when the "event" took place. News reports that they watched before all power and communications were silenced showed that some sort of a disaster had occurred in the U.S. and the country seemed in a panic mode. They also saw a great and blinding flash in the sky in the distance which seemed to indicate that some sort of a nuclear device had exploded (probably) in England. Since they were way out in the country in a very thinly populated area and their car no longer operated, they walked to their closest neighbor to seek information.
Sarah's family was part of the modern world of cars, cell phones, computers, and take out food. With none of this available to them they needed to quickly learn how to take care of their basic needs. Add to this a criminal element that were busy terrorizing, robbing and killing the area people and Sarah and her family are faced with re-learning how to survive.
I found this to be a very interesting and thought provoking read and recommend it very highly.

An end of the world story worth reading 14 juin 2012
Par Readsalot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A nuclear explosion happens at the beginning of the Woodson family"s vacation in rural Ireland. Suddenly trust into basic survival of the fittest, the family must deal with world changed back 100 years. Without grocery stores, convenience food, central heat and basic medical care and medicine, they must learn to overcome and flourish. With the help of some neighbors and friends , they learn to survive in a lawless time. From the beginning, the book was thought provoking. The characters well developed and believable. The twists and turns of the story line were unexpected. In the end you almost cheer out loud for the transformation of Sarah Woodson as she changes from a neurotic, insecure woman into a woman who will defend her family without a second thought. Throughout the book, there is a basic religious message but it is done without being preachy. I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end and I would recommend it. I also look forward to reading more of Susan Kiernan-Lewis' books

The most important things 7 août 2012
Par CathyD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I received this book free as an ebook from the author. This is a wonderful book about the important things in life. It is a story of a family on vacation abroad, when a crisis occurs and they cannot return home, let alone contact anyone there, because all communication is down. This family had been growing apart, living in their own little worlds, and never really connecting with each other. When all their comforts and conveniences are ripped out from under them, they are forced to find ways to survive, and in so doing, also begin to reconnect and realize how much they mean to one another. There are many suspenseful, nail-biting moments in this story, but it all comes around to a happy conclusion. The main characters' faith in God and value of family are a constant theme. I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it highly!
