Ten years ago, Grace witnessed something that would forever alter the course of history.
When a horrible scourge is unleashed on the world, Grace and others from their religious community are hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, following every rule that will keep them safe, pure, and alive. So long as they stay there, behind the red rope.
Her older brother's questions, along with the arrival of the first outsider she's seen in a decade, set in motion events that will lead Grace to question everything she has built her life on. Enemies come up from all sides, but who is the real enemy? What will it cost for her to uncover the truth?
For the first time, bestselling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up to deliver an intense, highly focused journey through the most treacherous world of all.
