    The title of Williams' first novel may conjure thoughts of England and WWII, but this book is about a different sort of invasion. In the Pennsylvania countryside, Sadie, a young Amish girl, suffers spells and visions that prefigure a solar storm. The storm interferes with electrical connections and effectively stalls society overnight. Planes fall out of the sky, and cities burn. The Amish, meanwhile, go about their normal fall routines, staying busy harvesting and preparing for winter. News of what is happening to the "English" reaches them, and they offer assistance, but it soon becomes clear that the need is too great. Desperate English begin ransacking farms and killing neighbors, leaving the Amish to consider their fate. Told via Sadie's father Jacob's diary, in the quiet, simple prose of a quiet, pious man, this is an intriguing take on the dystopian novel: an army memo on the book's first page makes clear that this and Jacob's other diaries, found long after the "event," are vital historical documents.
