Takes place in Nigeria. Story of a distinct culture and society and the effect of European missionaries, changing their lives forever. Would be good to compare with Poisonwood Bible. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595232795, Paperback)

The unthinkable happens when nuclear brinksmanship spirals off into to Armageddon. Billions die as governments disintegrate, great cities are annihilated and deeply laid plans to seize unlimited power swing into action.Tom McArthur: Once a carefree individualist, he was coaxed into a position of influence and leadership by unexpected opportunity and kept there by his sense of honor. He finds himself far from home and family, separated by hundreds of miles of impossible terrain, gangs of armed bandits and a hostile government.Lynn, his wife: Beautiful and intelligent, strong willed and voluptuous, she resents Tom's abandonment of her and their children for a distant political career. Now, with nothing but her courage, wits and willpower to work with, she must fight to keep herself and her children alive.Lance: Young, handsome and lonely, trained as the ultimate warrior, he drove himself into poverty and alcohol with the memory of an unspeakable evil he was party to. Will he find love and redemption or destroy those around him? Who will live? Who will die? What will emerge when things fall apart?
