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

"In the midst of a flood threat, an elderly Louisiana man looks back at a key time in his life, when tragedy disrupted his first romance and politics were a threat to the levee that protected his small community. Scott Sowers doesn't quite sound like the character he portrays in this first-person narrative--he's neither the young man learning harsh lessons about life nor the elderly man looking back reflectively. However, Sowers manages to infuse enough of the older man's wisdom and the younger man's conflicting emotions into the narrative to make it real and heartfelt. This is an engaging coming-of-age story, which also offers glimpses of Louisiana culture. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
