"A love triangle of the past endangers a small town's future. Notchaki, situated on the Mississippi Gulf Coast just west of Biloxi, is a community of well-mannered people not given to rash or obsessive behavior. But when the town is leveled by Hurricane Camille, the devastation sets off a volatile conflict. While the arguments appear to be over issues of reconstruction, a long-standing sexual rivalry runs its deep and bitter course. Elizabeth Spencer's elegant prose and laser insights bring the workings of the human heart and mind to life in this extraordinary novel."
