Massive earthquakes have been occurring in Europe, and one destroys most of England. In the novel, only one simple, farming family and the sophisticated protagonist author from London are depicted as surviving. Overwhelmingly dystopian, but the protagonist ultimately finds happiness in the simple life on the farm.
