Give me a hurricane before I go insane.
It's late August, and the South is in full bloom, and she's also ripe for a storm, which is exactly how an eclectic group of people fleeing a hurricane set to hit the coast of Florida and South Carolina end up at a farm in North Carolina.
The only thing any of them have in common is Grace and Charles Phillips, and their daughter Moira, and their need for a safe place to ride out the storm. Arriving at the Phillips in search of shelter are Javier Angel de la Cruz, a famed horse equestrian, a makeup artist named Hannah, horse breeder Gerda Klug and her daughter Elise, and Cara Rutledge, an island native.
There are a lot of personalities and emotions swirling around the Phillips' farm, and everyone is at their wit's end. They are forced to deal with unresolved issues, secrets, and biases they carry.
This is a story about finding what's important and dumping what isn't. It's a great book for a good day by the water.
