A Sad Jar of Atoms (Short)
Accused of adultery and manslaughter, and nine months pregnant, Rachel Pryne faces community judgment and a terrible decision. She can accept the protection of her community’s leader — the man who fathered her child by rape — or be expelled into a world devastated by alien conquerors. Rachel must choose death or the devil and find hope somewhere in between.
In this short story prequel to the sci-fi/post-apocalyptic novel, Girl Under Glass, readers will meet Rachel Pryne and discover just how determined a mother can be, even when the odds against her are overwhelming.
