A highly-praised debut novel by Diane Krauss, It’s Our Time, is scheduled for release on July 9th, 2019, by Zimbell House Publishing.
When the original founding fathers have been removed from the history of the United States, a new set of founding fathers is established. America is now governed by President Torrent and her council. In this socialist society, goods are provided by the government. From the outside, it sounds like an ideal egalitarian approach, but the reality is that the Elites and civilians live very different lives. In lush Villages beyond the walls, the Elites live in luxury, while the civilians are isolated to war-torn Divisions. When a young nurse named El has decided she’s had enough, she teams up with her best friend, Kai, and a new acquaintance named Pratt. The three move forth to confront the forces that are behind the chaotic destruction of their community.
Gabriel L., an early reviewer of this book, comments, “I really enjoyed the message of the book … This story read like a movie. I saw each scene play out in my head … each chapter unfolded to the next seamlessly. It was like one adventure after the next. I loved the characters, specifically the heroine, El … she strives to lead the nation back in the right direction after a far swing left to socialism … The writing is superb as is the plot. I hope high schools and colleges get their hands on this book for lectures.”
Diane Krauss was inspired to write It’s Our Time by the current political climate in the US. She explored what a world without capitalism would look like, taking influence from youth who endorse socialism. She wanted to explore the idea that recent support of socialism is more of a response to what has become trendy, rather than staunchly political belief. It’s Our Time can be purchased in hardcover and in eBook formats at zimbellhousepublishing.com/shop.
