Thunderous applause and cheers echoed throughout the conference hall at the European Union quarters in Brussels. Thomas falls to his knees in utter shock as he watched the televised life-changing event. His head was pounding as if there was a blaring red neon sign that was going off, and on in his head were the words, THE ANTICHRIST SIGNS SEVEN-YEAR PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL! Like most Christians, Thomas believed that the signing of the seven-year peace treaty would not take place until after the biblical rapture. In desperation, Thomas cries out to God as to why he was left behind. To his astonishment, he later learns that the rapture hadn't happened yet! With his adult son's help, Thomas comes to the conclusion that the seven-year tribulation must have begun at the time of the peace signing with Israel. In desperation, Thomas restores his broken marriage and moves his family, along with a small group of people to the Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan. He finds refuge at a forgotten, old abandoned settlement, which he and Scott had accidently discovered prior to the peace agreement. Miraculously, the buildings were still all intact. They were even filled with personal belongings, which had not been touched by human hands since the 1800s. Thomas felt led by God to bring his people to the Keweenaw, so they could take refuge from the tribulation and the diabolic Antichrist. Life is a struggle for the nineteen settlers as they live much like the pioneers of olden days. Besides the day-to-day struggles for survival, there were romantic conflicts, new relationships, and catastrophes. Nevertheless, the new members of Old Town put their faith in God's hands in the cold, rugged hills of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
