In the chaos of a world recovering from near total oblivion, Jennifer spent her childhood watching her father leave for his survey trips. Now as a newly qualified chronicler and medical officer her dream of accompanying him had finally come true. The team was scheduled to travel down the West Coast to investigate mysterious radio messages that suggested someone has nuclear capability. They were expecting to travel though a landscape with no technology and no communications, where each community had adopted its own life style. Some have embraced the future while others have lapsed back in to the old ways of religious control and greed. But what they found was way beyond anyone's wildest dreams. It is these encounters and her exposure to the ways of men that gained Jennifer her right of passage and earned her the position as the Chairperson of the secretive World Committee.
