Blackout

At first, no one panics when the lights go out. Power outages happen. The blackout begins to spread across Europe and it becomes obvious that the situation is serious.

Darling Bay is the former gold-rush town that Adele's great-grandfather built a saloon in. She left years ago, but with a change in circumstances she's right back where she started. These days the saloon looks more like the set in a western ghost-town than a working business. Add the complication of Nate Houston - the bartender who thought he'd be the next owner - and coming home isn't as much of an escape as Adele thought.
