I LOVED this book!!! Read it in just a couple of days. 😊
Like y’all, I had never heard of this event before. Honestly, my first thought was it was the same time frame as the Laura Ingalls Wilder book “The Long Winter.” After a little research (because I’m nerdy like that 😊), I learned this story occurred 7 years after that one.
The part that resonated with me the most was immediately after the blizzard. I’m a life-long resident of the MS Gulf Coast & have experienced many hurricanes, including Katrina. The feelings evoked in the story reminded me very much of the days immediately following Katrina — surveying the damage, looking for survivors, waiting to hear news about family & friends.
