Martha's Mirror is the highly anticipated sequel to Martha's Vine, a post-apocalyptic saga set in
Alberta, Canada, and written by Edmonton author, Sheree Zielke.
A WORLD WITHOUT POWER
A WORLD WHERE THE CRUELLEST REIGN
A WORLD WHERE WOMEN ARE SOLD LIKE CATTLE
A pallor of death has settled over the Canadian province of Alberta--a post-apocalyptic world
sagging under a total loss of electricity.
The necessities of life are disappearing: fuel, food, ammunition. But the Gatekeeper's people
struggle on. They have lost many men in a battle with a biker king, The Man. Worse, their
women and children have been taken hostage, and are destined for eastern Canada--to be sold as
"clean" women to the Mafia.
The Gatekeeper, Matthew, is plagued by guilt over faulty decisions he made in the defense of his
compound. His wife, Martha, takes a bullet to her chest--shot by Brad--in an attempt to free the
captives--including her daughters and grandchildren. Matthew vows to make amends, but an
early winter and a record snowfall get in his way.
Meanwhile, Brad, a traitor and a murderer...has plans of his own--cruel plans that will forever
change the lives of Martha and her adult daughters, Ruth and Elizabeth.
No one knows about the evil that awaits them in Drumheller--a city nestled in the southern
Alberta Badlands--home to mystical hoodoos and the world's largest dinosaur.
For some, the ancient Badlands will mean...revenge and retribution. But for others, Drumheller
"Brad," Ruth thought. She swiped at an angry tear. She clenched her teeth and re-shouldered her
long gun. "I can handle a few hours of this. A seed of hope began to grow. Then Mom can take over."
But she didn't know that a new hell was coming...
And it was going to last for months.
"A scared woman is capable of a great deal...very capable."
