Overview


She had nothing to lose…

To say that desperation clouded Jane Falgoust's judgment was a colossal understatement. With a hurricane bearing down on New Orleans, the failed nurse-turned-waitress viewed it as an opportunity—to escape her tattered life. But then she saw the dog paddling frantically in the surging flood waters. She couldn't let this dog drown. From that one rescue, her nursing instincts kicked in and she started saving people—including herself.

As the hurricane subsided, Jane tended the wounded in Dr. Ben Comeaux's makeshift street clinic. Sure, her life had turned upside down in the blink of an eye—but that was bad only if you were in a good place to begin with. Now it was time to rebuild—her life, her city—on a foundation of hope.

    Fantastic

    Forty-seven years old with her life in shambles having been divorced and losing her nursing job due to substance abuse, Jane Falgoust considers suicide. Meanwhile as public officials plead with people to leave New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina is expected to intensely hit, Jane decides to stay and let the storm make it look like an accident killed her so her Down¿s syndrome brother obtains her insurance money.----------------- However with the way her luck has run, Jane survives the storm. She soon rescues a dog struggling with the storm surge. Behind that Jane finds purpose helping the injured and the sick in Dr. Ben Comeaux's suddenly constructed street clinic. As she and Ben fall in love, they work together to help their city and its people heal.------------------ Helping those hurt by Katrina brings a new zest for life for the prime protagonist whose thoughts of ending it ends when others need her. The story line is incredibly powerful when Jane and Ben provide medical care to those left behind however, the obligatory romantic subplot feels intrusive taking away from the insightful look at medicine in New Orleans just after Katrina as this tale does. Readers will enjoy this deep look at the impact of the hurricane through the eyes of health providers.--------------- Harriet Klausner
