Sleeping Through the Nightmare : Robert WoodardPete, an athletic, college-educated, young man, signs on with a secure research facility located in the Arizona desert where he assists in the building of a cryogenic suspension chamber. When Pete reluctantly agrees to become the human test subject for a 90-day trial, he will come out of the chamber 108 years later when the last of the power grid, solar panels and internal storage cells gives out. What Pete discovers is that he is all alone. From a letter left in his room, he reads through the reason for his abandonment—the human population was ravaged by an uncontrolled and fast-spreading virus. First by walking, and then by a pickup Pete manages to get running, he learns that mankind is truly gone, and nature is slowly, but persistently, retaking what it once owned. Finally settling along the California coast near a small town that was once Morro Bay, Pete spends three years making a new life for himself.

April has spent all of her twenty-two years aboard a sailboat at sea. Just as her parents, and her grandparents, they were born and bred at sea from survivalist who remained upon the waters to avoid land, and the virus that struck long ago. A life at sea is all April knows and she fears the day her parents pass away to leave her as the last survivor of a dwindling group. A tragic accident, that April blames herself for, takes her mother from her, leaving only her and her father, Gus, to continue forward. Fleeing into their dinghy when their sailboat finally gives in to time and sinks, the two of them wind up on shore where April fears they will perish from their inability to adapt to it.

Follow Pete’s and April’s adventures as they slowly come together and find new hope in a lonely world full of promise. It is a harsh world where lessons must be learned in order to survive, but if they can endure it, a life worth living.
