Goodreads Synopsis:

When the world ends, can love survive?

For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone makes fighting for tomorrow an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

Red Hill grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go until its stunning conclusion. This is #1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire at her unforgettable best.

My Thoughts

For a more adult post-apocalyptic novel, Red Hill was extremely emotional for me. Jamie is an incredible author and she has a unique way of being able to connect me to the characters and become extremely attached to them.

Red Hill is a great story of a group of people who try to survive together and who are more connected to each other than they know.

The pages of Red Hill have tear stains on them. Told from three different POVs, I have to say that Scarlet is one bad ass. It just goes to show that one woman’s determination to save her children really does not know any boundaries and you really can find love and happiness. Even at the end of the world.
