Total amount:

When the impossible to believe becomes impossible to ignore...The instant when the beginning of the end finally happened, the world at large was unprepared to face the aftermath of the event that heralded it. In a small remote mountain town tucked away in

the hills of North Carolina, a band of friends must now face what will be the last seven years of human history. The choices they make will determine their ultimate destiny.

“The three of us laid down in beds that were not our own in a place that was not our home in a world that in the blink of an eye has become dark and foreboding. Despite our uncertainties, we laid down to sleep at peace, closer to each other than ever before. We didn’t yet know much about what we would soon be facing, but we closed our eyes that night knowing that from here on out whatever surprises or horrors we would face...good or bad, easy or hard, live or die, we now belonged to God’s family. We were now Tribulation Brothers.”

“Now the Rubicon so to speak, has been irrevocably crossed. The Tribulation has begun. The countdown has started. The span of our lives and of this world is now set. The number of years this world has left - seven.”

Raised in the Piedmont region of South Carolina, Alice Johnson Childs has dreamed of being a writer since childhood. Mother to her children Kristen and Mitch, and grandmother of five, she has been published in Rapture Ready, and Prophecy Update among other Christian websites. She lives at home with her husband, David, three dogs (Orson, Luna, and Jett), and a mute feline (Flower Cat). Legally blind, she writes all of her material on her cell phone, from a rocking chair on the front porch or in her living room. Her upcoming projects include a compilation of poems and prose, and a collection of Christian articles. On the side, she writes many amusing stories for each of her grandchildren.

Wonderful book, but needs better editing

I have been following the writing of Alice Childs for a while now, and I was excited to see that she had finally published "Seven". She writes with vivid description and intensity and while the book is fiction, the events in it are supported by scripture. That said, the book is in real need of quality editing. "Seven" contains vast and unexpected amounts of typographical and spacing errors. While it's true that the book is set in the rural mountains of the Carolinas, it was often difficult to understand the dialogue, as it written phonetically in the voice of a "hillbilly" accent. Both of these issues are a distraction in an otherwise brilliant tale. Alice Childs is a treasure. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future and meeting her in the air! Well done, good and faithful servant.

Love it!

This is one of the most interesting, spell binding books I have ever read. In addition to a great fiction story of the things that happen to a small group of people who find themselves left behind after the Rapture of the Church (born again believers in Christ suddenly disappearing from earth), it will be very helpful for anyone who really does find themselves left behind on earth to endure the seven years of the Tribulation. It details coming events in an easy to understand and interesting way. I would recommend SEVEN to anyone, believers and non-believers alike. Last, but certainly not least, there are scriptures throughout that verify the events as predicted in the Bible. So, while the story and characters are fictional, the events are very real and coming sooner than anyone thinks. Although I loved reading this book, I wouldn’t want anyone to live this story for real, but sadly I know that many will. I plan to order extra copies to leave around the house, car, etc. for those people as a guide to where we have gone, why we are gone and what they can expect to happen next.
