This narrative re-creates Hurricane Audrey through the eyes of the survivors in a combination of suspense, family drama, and the struggle for life over death. In the midnight hours of June 27, 1957, the hurricane exploded in intensity and speed, slamming into the sleeping coast at dawn�12 hours ahead of its predicted landfall. Many unsuspecting residents woke that morning to find water already inside their homes. Their ordeal transports the reader back to 1957 with a new appreciation and understanding of how Cameron Parish residents clung to life during the category-four storm.
