The Shelter Cycle


An American original,Peter Rock brings our strangest beliefs to vivid and sympathetic life in thishaunting novel inspired by true events.

The Shelter Cycle tells the storyof two children, Francine and Colville, who grew up in the Church Universal andTriumphant, a sect that predicted the world would end in the late 1980s.While their parents built underground shelters to withstand the impendingSoviet missile strike, Francine and Colville played in the Montana wilderness,where invisible spirits watched over them. When the prophesized apocalypse didnot occur, the denomination’s members resurfaced and the children were forced to growup in a world they believed might no longer exist.

Twenty years later Francineand Colville are reunited while searching for an abducted girl. Haunted bymemories and inculcated beliefs, they must confront the church’s teachings. Ifall the things they were raised to believe were misguided, why then do theysuddenly feel so true?
