Written in 2015, ‘The Mottisfont Chronicle; Arrival’ is the disturbingly prescient story of schoolteacher Gerry Morris’s struggle to protect his family during the outbreak of a deadly virus.

As the veneer of civilisation is eroded by a disease from which only one person in a thousand survives, humanity faces catastrophe.

Rejecting the choice of staying in an increasingly savage London, lifelong city-dweller Gerry joins a group of survivors determined to escape.

But escape to where?

And since the technological infrastructure on which modern life depends has ceased … escape to what sort of life?

‘The Mottisfont Chronicle: Arrival’ is the first novel in a trilogy.
