Hallie is missing-and so are thousands of others. Everywhere people are singing-climbing to the rooftops, to the bridges, to lamp post and road sign, steeple and water tower, singing gloriously, triumphantly, tirelessly-and dying.
Hallie's mother, Dale, goes to Manhattan to search for her. She drives in from rural New Jersey, passing abandoned cars and trucks, to make her way to the jammed George Washington Bridge, rejoicing with hymns and gospel and rock and opera.Â
The plague moves swiftly, and the city's survivors form new communities, dealing with the rotting corpses, trying to re-establish a new infrastructure for the new order .
And odd things happen-angels come to earth, Christ drags his crucifix around Rockefeller Center, the Indian god Ganesh runs for mayor-but it doesn't seem remarkable to the survivors. A man falls in love with a mermaid and decides to throw in his fortunes with hers, only to be attacked by an animal liberated from the zoo. Politics begins to assert itself, as does real estate issues, and it matters what-and who-you believe. It's time to choose sides.To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed. It is a free software.
