When a catastrophic solar storm brings about the collapse of modern civilization, an Amish community is caught up in the devastating aftermath. Planes plummet to the ground. Once-bright skies go dark. The systems of modern life crumble. With their farms, stocked larders, and tradition of self-reliance, the Amish are unaffected at first. But as the English (what the Amish call outsiders) become more and more desperate for food and safety away from the chaotic city, they begin to invade Amish farms, taking whatever they want and unleashing unthinkable violence on the peaceable community. Seen through the diary of an Amish farmer named Jacob as he tries to protect his family and his way of life, When the English Fall combines elements of the most thrilling postapocalyptic fiction with a lyrical look at a vanishing set of values. Should members of a nonviolent society defy their beliefs and take up arms to defend themselves? And if they don't, can they survive? David Williams's debut novel in the spirit of Station Eleven and The Dog Stars is a thoroughly engrossing look at the closed world of the Amish, as well as a thought-provoking examination of "civilization" and what remains if the center cannot hold. 8.25"x5.75", 242 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
