"The Wayfarers | Jacob's Trouble", Christian-Fiction by Jim Yackel

Part 3 of The Wayfarers trilogy -

You may be familiar with the acronym TEOTWAWKI, which is the end of the world as we know it.   For those left living in America, the world as they knew it has indeed ended.  The true followers of Jesus Christ are now gone, and what is left is a collapsing nation and a world in upheaval that is lurching toward the biblically prophesied seven years of Great Tribulation, also known as Jacob's Trouble from the book of Daniel.

Appropriately enough, it would happen that a young musician named Jacob and his brother are left to survive in an upstate New York village under the control of Martial Law, enforced by the National Guard and a peculiar volunteer paramilitary group created by the President.  In an effort to stay alive, Jacob and his brother are forced to abandon the home they grew up in and take cover in a familiar wooded area that had been a sanctuary for each since childhood.  But could these brothers keep themselves concealed for long enough?  Would they be forced to be wayfarers, travelling away from the home they knew with strangers who likewise are on the lamb?  Would there be direct influence from the supernatural - and would the brothers make changes in their lives that would affect them for eternity?

Could they survive until the end?
