I had read the second book in the Kamas trilogy (the Star Chamber Brotherhood) before
Starting this book, so I had an idea of how this ends.
There is no clear explanation in either book as to how the President-for-Life, his Unionist one Party government or labour camps came into being.
Paul Wagner is forced to sell his business, and planned to emigrate with his family to England when he is arrested for no valid reason, but is sentenced to five years as a political prisoner.
his 12yo daughter Claire, is separated from her mother and younger sister when they are taken by security officers at Philadelphia airport, decides her best course is to find which camp her father is in, and wait for him.
Helen Sigler, a prisoner’s wife who lives outside the prison camp, befriends Claire, and helps her to get a position as a home help to Martha Chambers, the deputy warden’s wife.
Martha Chambers, the deputy warden’s wife, as she hears her husband and his fellow officers and government officials talk, she begins to realise what is happening in the camp.
With Solzhenitsyn as guide, Preston Fleming has written of a very real camp in future America.
