I was fascinated with the setting and plot of this book. Key West in the 30s in the middle of a hurricane. We follow 3 different women during this time, which is chaotic collectively due to the impending storm coming, but also individually because each of their lives are complicated. I love stories like this, but I think in this case it made me connect a bit less with some of them. My absolute favorite one was Helen, a Key West native in an abusive marriage.
I love the connecting thread to their lives and seeing the struggles they each go through. In many ways, each of their stories shows strength and resilience. I think that’s one of my favorite things about Ms. Cleeton’s books. Her female characters are strong women, even the more quiet ones.
I couldn’t put this one down and I gobbled it up literally in one sitting. It’s addictive and you want to know how things will unfold so you keep reading. There’s danger and romance, heartbreak and happiness. All against the Key’s backdrop that just sparks to life.
While this isn’t my favorite historical fiction by Ms. Cleeton is certainly one I really enjoyed and highly encourage that you pick up.
