I'm waiting on the last proof, but this is what the book jacket will look like. I'm so excited to have received permission from the Galveston Historical Foundation to use the panoramic photo that stretches across the bottom of the entire front and back cover. It was taken from the top of the Gresham House (known today as the Bishop's Palace) facing east-southeast along Broadway Street after the devastating storm on September 8, 1900.
What used to be blocks and blocks of established neighborhoods beyond the destroyed church and remaining houses on the right were swept clean by the hurricane. The debris line, created from thousands of destroyed houses and businesses and in some places thirty feet high, ran from one end of the island to the other.
But the hurricane isn't the only storm on the horizon in this story. Can't wait for you to read it!
