The 40th Day

no. 5, After the Cure

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


"Everyone here is already exposed. Don’t come here. Your family is dead. Your friends are dead. Do not trust anyone from the City. There may already be people out there who are infected and don’t know it. Do not let them in. Do not let yourself be moved by pity. They are deadly."

In the concluding novel of the After the Cure series, a small splinter colony of surviving humans struggle to protect themselves from a devastating plague. Without modern medicine, without electricity or hope of outside aid, the only resort is quarantine. But when even that proves not to be enough to protect the remaining healthy population, a tiny group of Infected race against their own bodies to destroy the Plague at its source.

The 40th Day is the fifth and final novel in the After the Cure series.

The Cured by Deidre Gould

I enjoyed this series , each book was a story unto it self, the characters were fully developed into persons of interest, even the minor ones kept the story going smoothly. I felt connected to the story and could feel myself feeling as they felt with each page. I could not stop thinking, what if this really could happen, and it really already has to a much smaller area in Africa last year. Sadly the virus is still not contained because of the beliefs of the tribe and their burial beliefs,”washing,wrapping and sitting with the dead for three days , which spreads the disease . As you can tell I love to read but I am not a writer by any means. Cannot wait until your next book or and extension of these. Like after the people are cured and how they work together to survive and meet other survivors. Thank you for many nights of enjoyment. Susan A
