In the year 2027, the world is on the brink of disaster. The sun has stopped shining, the seas are rising, and the Earth is in the grip of a global pandemic. Against this backdrop, a small group of people live in a city called July, a refuge from the chaos outside.

July is a city of isolation, ruled by a self-appointed council of elders who have refused to leave their homes. The citizens of July are sustained by the belief that the impending doom of the world is a product of the people of July themselves. As the city falls further into disarray, the citizens of July turn to each other for support, even as they begin to question the validity of their beliefs.

A City Called July is a novel of hope and despair, of courage and cowardice, of love and hate. It is a story of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds, and of the power of faith.; 8vo; 284 pages; $6.50.
