Jessie is a young girl who enjoys the traditional southern life of a small town where faith, personal freedoms, and independence are a way of life. When she reaches the ripe old age of seventeen, the United States of America is torn and its citizens living within a total maelstrom. She and her family experience an invasion and a new world that Jessie can hardly believe to be real. Why had no one seen this coming? As she undertakes new challenges Jessie finds strength, passion, love and her patriotic spirit. Survival without the freedoms they all once knew as inalienable is the dilemma and taking America back is their goal.
