The author of three novels, Elise Blackwell is a "thoughtful, subtle writer" (Booklist). In this compelling and emotionally affecting tale, Hurricane Katrina bares down on New Orleans, evoking in 95-year-old Louis Proby memories of the fateful-and life-defining-flood of 1927. And tied up in these memories are all the triumphs, missteps and family obligations that make up his life. "An intimate, resonant history ."-Publishers Weekly
