Summary
"March 18, 1925. The day begins as any other rainy, spring morning in the thriving small town of Marah, Illinois. But Marah lies directly in the path of the worst tornado in US history, which will descend without warning and leave the community in ruins. By nightfall, hundreds will be homeless and hundreds more will lie in the streets, dead or grievously injured. Only one man will still have everything he started the day with--his family, his home, and his business, all miraculously intact. Kate Southwood's entrancing novel follows Paul Graves and his young family in the year after the storm as they struggle to comprehend their own fate and that of their devastated town. They watch helplessly as Marah tries to resurrect itself from the ruins and as their friends and neighbors begin to wonder, then resent, how one family, and only one, could be exempt from terrible misfortune. As the town begins to recover, the family miscalculates the growing hostility around them with tragic results"--P. [2] of cover
