Renae White marks her debut in the world of literature with Resistance. This new novel will send readers on a perilous journey through an earth ravaged by social unrest and civil strife. This new novel will let readers examine the issue of war in light of the experiences of a group of people whose lives are irrevocably changed by it.
The novel is set in the fictional city of Richmond, in Maine, after a war that left thousands dead and the world in pieces. The survivors of the global cataclysm went one of three ways. Some turned to the new government, offering their fealty to their new lords and hoped for the promised safety. Those who distrusted the new regime broke off from society, packing what they could in order to survive on their own. The third group of people walked away with a new cause and a death sentence. This small group formed the Resistance, men and women who did not believe in war and who actively opposed the government and their new laws. White, the compelling narrator, lets readers follow the members of the Resistance in their efforts to find hope, humanity and peace in a world engulfed by devastation and turmoil.
Heralding the arrival of a gifted voice in literature, Resistance works simultaneously as a dystopian vision of the future, an action-packed survival story and a cautionary tale that allows readers to probe into the enormously significant issue of war.
This book will be featured at the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 9 – 13, 2013.
