My sister and I remember reading a book about the rapture and we thought the title was "The Rapture", but cannot find any information at all about it. It was a book we read in either in the late 1960's or early 1970's and we can only remember bits and pieces of it.
The bits we can remember are that we think the main characters name is Esther and that her parents or grandparents were killed by boiling in oil. They also lived in a cave at some point and when running low on food had to trade their jewelry for supplies. I remember something about having to use crumbs from burnt toast as a kind of drink since there was no coffee. We were pretty young when we read this and so can't really remember much more than that.
Thanks in advance for anyone that can help us
