On a Friday afternoon before Labor Day, Americans are getting ready for the holiday weekend, completely unaware of a long-planned terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is settling in for his return flight home when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, and results in the crippling of the power grid, the shutting down of modern communications, and bringing to a halt most forms of transportation.
Kyle narrowly escapes when his airplane crashes on take-off, only to find himself stranded 2,000 miles from home in a country that has been forced, from a technological standpoint, back to the 19th Century. Confused, hurt, scared, and alone, Kyle must make his way across a hostile continent to a family he’s not even sure has survived the effects of the attack. As Kyle forges his way home, his frightened family faces their own struggles for survival in a community trying to halt its own slow spiral into chaos and anarchy.
Based on scientist’s predictions of what would happen if a single nuclear bomb is detonated over Kansas, 77 Days in September follows Kyle and his wife, Jennifer, as they are stretched past their breaking point, but find in their devotion to each other the strength to persevere.
Great read !
Just finished reading "77 days" and I highly recommend this book. It is focuses more on the emotional strength of people as they weather disastrous events. I gave it 3 stars for the many "dues ex machina" moments and the frailty of the female lead. Overall this book is a welcome addition to the EOTW genre.

WOW, read this in one sitting because it was so good. Felt like I was reading someone's real life journal...
I could not put this book down...the story was riveting. The author takes you through a gamult of emotions as he tells of the struggles of a man trying to get back to his family after an EMP attack. I felt as if I walked every mile with him and suffered along with him. This is one of the most descriptive, emotionally charged books I have ever read and I highly recommend it to everyone. The threat of an EMP is very real and the author vividly describes the resulting breakdown of society.
