A Fine Line by Wren Brian

Set out of time and place, four friends and those around them struggle to cope with increasing conflict taking over their country. As their world is turned upside down they are forced to confront who they are in the face of harsh new realities. As one turns to the military, the others grow increasingly cautious of the rights being taken in the name of safety and fluctuate between denial and impulsive action. As the turmoil drags on and desperation kicks in they must decide what parts of themselves they will and will not sacrifice in the pursuit of freedom and justice.
