In the not too distant future a young woman bears witness to the end of her world.
Earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions rock the planet, reducing cities to smoking rubble, burying entire islands and coastlines beneath cataclysmic waves.
Religious fervor and human evil erupt and entwine, becoming a maelstrom of madness in the days after, bringing with it the horror of apocalyptic war.
As a population in the depths of despair struggles to overcome insurmountable odds, can a single glimmer of hope flare into a beacon for the survivors?
This is her tale…the world is ours…and now, it’s STORY TIME.
From the reviewers:
Ordinary Americans Brave Apocalyptic Struggles: BRILLIANT! The conclusion will amaze and prompt you to consider many things even after the book is closed. Nothing is predictable about ‘Story Time’ except that it is very well told by a fantastic writer. – Ellen Ekey Hines
If you enjoy suspenseful tales involving the apocalypse that will keep you on the edge of your seat, Story Time is a must read. It is one of the better versions I have seen, especially if compared to other books and movies on the same subject. - Mistress of the Dark Path
This is a beautifully crafted book. Ms Jeppsen has done a brilliant job of portraying the entire gamut of human emotions and personalities, – from weakness to strength, despair to hope, immorality to compassion, grief to peace. Her characters are utterly believable and her descriptions of events put you in the midst of the action. It is well-paced and maintains the tension throughout. – “mountainmama”
