Destructive hurricanes more than a hundred years apart shred their lives...

+Solstice Publishing +Goodreads

Following a series of devastating hurricanes in 2004, Calle Jenkins and her family return home to Key West. Finding nothing left but wreckage, her parents decide to start over. For fourteen year old Calle, starting over means finding friends who evacuated or rode out the storms, starting a new kind of school, and realizing that, for a while at least, life is going to be very different from what she expected. To help her cope, her mother gives her a journal written by a teenaged relative over a century ago.

Elizabeth Berg lives on Galveston Island in 1900, and despite there being some family troubles, doesn’t want to live anywhere else. To her, Galveston is heaven on earth. Until Mr. Isaac Cline warns them that serious changes are at their heels, and with them, the apocalypse. By then, there is no way or nowhere to run. All lines of communication and transportation have been destroyed.

Buildings were shredded and thousands perished as the winds howled and the sea rose.

For Elizabeth and Calle, life moved on.

“The Storm” of September 8, 1900 remains the deadliest hurricane in US history.

"Egyre nagyobb házunk, s egyre kisebb családunk van
Kényelmesebben élünk, s kevesebb időnk van
Több végzettség, s kevesebb józanész
Több tudás, s kevesebb helyes döntés
Több szakértő, s kevesebb megoldás
Több gyógyszer, s kevesebb egészség
Mi már hatalmas távolságokat tettünk meg a Holdig és vissza, és képtelenek vagyunk átmenni a szomszédba egy teára
Hatalmas számítógép-rendszereink vannak, és egyre kevesebbet beszélgetünk egymással
Megnyertük a mennyiséget, s elvesztettük a minőséget
Gyors éttermekbe járunk, s lassan emésztünk
Egyre több hatalmunk van, s egyre alacsonyabb a morál
Egyre több a jövedelem, és egyre több a szegény
Túl sok ablakot nyitottunk a világra, s egyet sem önmagunk, s egymás felé."

Tendzin Gjaco / Dalai Láma
