December 2017 Indie Next List
“This new novel from legendary romance author Nora Roberts feels entirely fresh and utterly compelling. A plague that starts on a small farm manages to destroy almost the entire human population on Earth, and those who are left find themselves changed - some for better, some for worse. The scattered bits of humanity that remain struggle to fight the chaos that descends, as some characters - Lana and Max, Arlys and Fred, and Rachel and Jonah - find themselves immune to the plague. This fabulous departure from Roberts' usual storytelling is refreshing and compulsively readable!”

Winter 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List
“Nora Roberts steps away from romance to give us an absolutely devastating story of global cataclysm. A new disease has rapidly infected most of the world, leaving behind survivors who exhibit mysterious—and dangerous—new abilities. I read this in one sitting, on the edge of tears at all times as I moved through every emotion. Although Year One chronicles the near-extinction of mankind, the story is one of rebirth and the persistence of hope, rather than despair. I’ll be counting the days until the next book in the series releases!”
