From the New York Times bestselling author of the Beach
House series comes a heartwarming and evocative novel about
the bonds and new beginnings that are born from natural
disasters and how, even during the worst of circumstances—or
perhaps because of them—we discover what is most important
Late August is a beautiful time on the Southern coast—the
peach trees are ripe, the ocean is warm, and the sweet tea
is icy. A perfect time to enjoy the rocking chairs on the
porch. But beneath the calm surface bubbles a threat: it’s
also peak hurricane season.
When a hurricane threatens the coasts of Florida and South
Carolina, an eclectic group of evacuees flees for the farm
of their friends Grace and Charles Phillips in North
Carolina: the Phillips’s daughter Moira and her rescue dogs,
famed equestrian Javier Angel de la Cruz, makeup artist
Hannah McLain, horse breeder Gerda Klug and her daughter
Elise, and island resident Cara Rutledge. They bring with
them only the few treasured possessions they can fit in
their vehicles. Strangers to all but the Phillips, they must
ride out the storm together.
During the course of one of the most challenging weeks of
their lives, relationships are put to the test as the
evacuees are forced to confront the unresolved issues they
have with themselves and with each other. But as the storm
passes, they realize that what really matters isn’t what
they brought with them to the mountains. Rather, it’s what
they’ll take with them once they leave.
