The author's 6th novel offers us an intimate look at life and hardships in a small fishing community on the Louisiana Gulf Coast in 1893. Hit hard by tropical storms and hurricanes, the community suffered many losses, not just of their property and family, but of their innocence. The village of Cheniere Caminada had a population of 1600 on October 1, 1893. The next day half were gone. The legacy left by the people of Chénière is a proud and courageous one. Chénière, before the 1893 storm, was a special place, not just because of its picturesque setting and colorful history - it was the living monument of a people's pride - the identity of the people who lived and worked there. There was a wild beauty about this place where waves rolled with haughty grandeur against the sandy shore. One day that wild beauty went horribly awry when the sea suddenly swept in over the land, then rushed out again with a terrible force, taking people with it. There were many stories of survival, each one more horrible than the last. One, in particular, of a 14- year-old boy who experienced an 8 day ordeal on a raft so terrible that one can only imagine bow he survived so long without food or water, will break your heart - not only for the reality of the tragedy, but for the way in which it is told to the reader. A beautiful compelling story of loss and redemption and the complex destructiveness of grief set against the Reconstruction Era in the South after the Civil War. It is a story of devotion and discovery, belief and trust, but above all - love - the love between one very special soul and another. Based on actual events.

About the Author:

The author was born in Atlanta, Texas and raised in Golden Meadow, Louisiana - on the banks of Bayou Lafourche near the Gulf of Mexico. For 20 years the author worked in the field of Human Services, mostly as a Mental Health Counselor and Social Services Program Director in the Houma area. She holds a B.A. degree in Psychology with graduate work in Psychological Counseling from Nicholls State University and a Ph.D. in Human Services from Walden University - Institute of Advanced Studies. The author avidly studies genealogy to learn more about her family history and to enhance the authenticity of her fiction. Both parents offer interesting ancestry; her father part Native American Cherokee from Oklahoma and her mother's ancestors came over from France. Historical Fiction is her favorite genre. While her career has been focused on dealing with academics, her interests have ranged far beyond the classroom and include a love of the paranormal, the exploration of space and the search for extraterrestrial life - along with some simpler pursuits such as genealogy and photography. She is the author of six novels on the folklife and folklore of South Louisiana Cajun Country. Her novels have been called exciting, shrewd, fresh, original, intricately woven, totally original, and beautifully crafted. Linda took stories told to her by her maternal grandparents and 23 years later turned them into unforgettable evocative novels. Her novels convey the heart and soul of the area in times past; having them told now is a remarkable act of scholarship and love. Linda brings all of her characters to life while showing us an up close glimpse of the days before cars and electricity, before modern medicine, and before industrialization. Her novels are also stories about the author's ancestors. Discovering her roots has been a revealing journey for Linda and one she shares eagerly with her readers.
