For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.

He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

GUEST POST | Author’s Favorite Scenes | EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN
I wrote EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN over the span of about three years, so there are many scenes that really stuck out for me. One of my most memorable was, by far, the time when Atticus and Thais have their first real ‘argument’. It happens in the cabin after a certain event that I will not spoil here, and the scene, for me, was very intense and emotional to write. I felt like my heart was breaking and filling up at the same time.
Another one of my favorite scenes—and apparently many readers as well—was the arena scene, when Atticus is forced to fight to the death, gauntlet-style. And I admit, while writing it, I felt like I was there, seeing it through Thais’ eyes—which is why her reaction to what was happening to the man she loves was so brave and dangerous. In this story, it’s certainly not only the guy who saves the girl, as Thais, regardless of her peaceful nature and small stature, is far from being the damsel-in-distress type. She is strong and fearless, and she proves that not only in the arena scene, but time and time again.
