About the Book
Portsoy Woods is the story of a young Northern Virginia intelligence analyst who convinces his wife that their young family and four small children, should relocate from the relative comforts and security of their suburban home to a large acreage tract in a very rural setting. This is a difficult decision for them to make initially as it takes them from friends, family, and from good jobs with negligible commutes.The decision to relocate is certainly, at first, counter-intuitive.

They relocate and find that even within their own state,a completely different rural culture, and to some degree, different values exist in comparison to those of the suburban world they knew. Their journey and adaptation, new friends and their learning is explored, as the economy and culture of the country is in decline. They also endured a continued deterioration of the United States, an economic collapse, some notable disasters including a national pandemic, personal losses, and uncertainties. The family learns not only to provide help to family and friends was but when to graciously receive it themselves.

Although this book will probably attract those who are interested in preparedness, pre-emptive relocation, and survivalism, this story of a family is about much more. Told from the perspective of the wife, a registered nurse, it also concerns the value of flexibility, resilience, hope, faith, loss, and charity for one's family, one's friends and for the community. It is also a hopeful look at today's families and of rural life. Anyone who has ever tested the boundaries of their comfort zone in any venue will appreciate this book.
