Brielle is a young professional woman living on her own in a city. She has recently started a relationship with the love of her life.
Rayden is Brielle’s boyfriend and lives on the other side of the river. He is determined to let her know that he loves her, even though they are separated.
A terrible virus has suddenly separated the two halves of a large city. A bridge connects the two halves and only one half is affected by the epidemic. Brielle lives on one side of the river and Rayden on the other. Suddenly they are separated, and all communication between the two sides is severed.
This is a compelling and engrossing story. The parallels to the current situation are obvious, though much more extreme. Brielle and Rayden’s story is told through a series of flashbacks and scenes from the present. The author does an excellent job of telling each character’s story and the contrast from the virus ridden side of the river and the healthy one is very stark. Brielle is in more than just quarantine, power and supplies are only sporadic and they have been cut off from communication with the outside world. Rayden is healthy and has resources, but is terribly worried about Brielle. There is quite a lot of story packed into just a few pages.
