From Senator W.L. Mount, (D) Louisiana -- "A fascinating account of one of the greatest tragedies on the Gulf Coast. This book is fabulous . .
I could not put it down. Cathy Post, a native but only a child at the time, brings Hurricane Audrey to life again . . . with tragedy, horror, love stories, heroism and the mysteries of nature! This book is compelling and the reader will find himself absorbed with every family and the challenges each faced. The author grabs the very fabric of every emotion as she takes you through the storm. After the State of Louisiana and her people faced two killer hurricanes (three weeks apart) in 2005, reading this book raised the level of appreciation for the people of the Gulf Coast . . . their love for each other, the land, their culture, their faith and their strength."
E.R. Jung, author of "Testimonial to a Habit" states -- "A compelling page turner . . . this book is riveting. Cathy Post knows her subject well -- this spell-binding account of Hurricane Audrey which overtook the Gulf Coast town of Cameron, Louisiana in 1957. Her chilling historical narrative sweeps us into its black waters along with the families struggling for survival, giving this reader some vivid memories of infested flotsome and debris which haunted me for days. For the victims stranded in the swamps, the aftermath of Hurricane Audrey is packed with suspense. This is the author's first book . . . I hope it will not be her last. I could not put the book down."
