An ambitious stranger arrives in the progressive, self-sufficient community of Arden with new ideas for what Arden can become, and what it can achieve, no matter the cost...
On the heels of a nation-wide food shortage and market crash, the community of Arden stands as an oasis of sustainability in a self-consuming society. For lifelong farmers like Silas, it is home and family. For newcomers like Kai–a charismatic, young leader with radical ideas about the future–it is a haven that the inhabitants must save from the next large scale disaster.
Yet as speculation becomes action, and the world beyond Arden tips further toward collapse, the community divides over what it will take to survive. And in the shadow of a bleak and uncertain future, mistakes can have fatal consequences.
