    A fascinating read that is a historical book, but has the drama of a thriller

    I had heard about this book from the newspaper and having always had an interest in hurricanes, I thought I would give this one a try. I loved the book and got a real feel for the awful time when this storm hit the Keys. The book was packed with information and recounts but was written in a way to draw you into the lives of the people that were impacted by the storm. There were so many names it was sometimes to keep them all straight and sometimes there was repetitive material but the overall reading experience for me was great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves history, storms or reading more about an era gone by. Job well done.

    A Fantasic Story Made Even More So Because It's True!

    Thomas Neil Knowles has written a wonderful book. As a Florida native who has spent a lot of time on the Keys, I found it particulary intriguing. I became incredibly attached to the people who experienced this tragedy, and I wept for them and their families. Mr. Knowles' style in delivering this true story is masterful. He gently teases the reader of events yet to come, making it difficult to put the book down. His summaries were concise and factual, helping the reader grasp the significance of events. I was moved and inspired, and filled with awe and sadness. Anyone with any interest in the weather or old Florida will truly enjoy this book.
