Hurricane Katrina was a killer. Its passing destroyed not only homes and cars and boats, but it took a good chunk out of Gulf Coast people as well. Battering their hopes, shattering their dreams, drowning their already shaky security.
Cherisse Bernard’s family had been lucky. The storm that swept so violently through the south had missed their homes completely. Wind damage was minimal, flooding was nearly nonexistent, the death toll was at zero and unlikely to increase. But how long would that—could that—good fortune possibly last?
Now was the perfect time for Cherisse to make her move. She had three weeks in which to drive down to Louisiana , pack up her widowed mother and sister and get them safely ensconced in her Kansas City town-home before the next big storm blew in.
What Cherisse hadn’t planned on during those next three weeks was falling in love. And not just with a man, for Lonnie Gaspard, Jr. was all that and more, but she also falls in love again with her birthplace. Cherisse learns that her hometown isn’t simply a spot on a map. It’s a people, her people, and the struggle to survive life’s storms is what keeps communities like hers alive and thriving despite the difficulties of living in hurricane country.
