‘A gripping, full-throttle page-turner… puts the reader right in the eye of the emotional storm’ Miranda Cowley Heller, author of THE PAPER PALACE
_________________________________________

An adrenaline-fueled story of lives upended and privilege lost in a swiftly changing world.


Daphne Larsen-Hall has every reason to believe that her life as an artist in a luxury Miami house with her surgeon husband, Brantley, and their family, will carry on forever.

But Luna – the world’s first Category 6 hurricane – changes everything. With Brantley missing in the aftermath of the massive storm, Daphne and their children find themselves in a vast shelter for the displaced a thousand miles from home, their finances abruptly cut off.

As days turn into weeks, the family confronts losses and circumstances they never imagined, and a world that has changed beneath their feet. When tensions in the shelter reach a breaking point, Daphne’s resilience is put to the ultimate test as she realises ‘normal’ will never return – and faces the shocking truths that threaten to tear her family apart once more.
