The Fatherless series is set three decades in the future when the United States joins the rest of the developed world in severe financial decline because the economic pyramid has flipped. Too few young are bearing the burden of a rapidly aging population. A main character struggles to convince skeptical politicians to encourage what he calls "bright spots" in the midst of dismal economic and cultural clouds. The generally despised "breeders" (married couples with kids) are vital to financial and social stability, a notion hard for many to swallow, let alone advocate. This fictional future is based upon the real-world trajectory of current demographic, economic, legal and cultural trends. Fatherless co-author Kurt Bruner posts periodic blog entries that showcase how to be part of the solution and expose the shadowy influence of dark zone trends.
Explore the demographic and sociological trends portrayed in these books and celebrate the resiliant beauty of God's design for marriage and parenthood. Kurt's blog invites readers to turn the tide by becoming a bright spot.
