Overview

The fourth novel for this author, presents a tale of tragedy and survival.
WHAT IS THE WILL TO SURVIVE? It has been described as hope, determination, and a positive mental attitude. The "will to survive" is commonly referred to as a desire to live despite seemingly insurmountable mental or physical obstacles. When there seems to be no escape from your situation, and the odds seem against you, the "will to survive" can provide you with the spark you need to press on. The will to survive can also be considered "the refusal to give up."
"The Disappearance of Alice" is based on real events. In 1893, when a fierce hurricane destroyed her tiny village on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, a six year old child was separated from her family by the strong wind and waves, snatched by Mother Nature, tossed out into the night, alone and scared she endured days of torment on the open sea. Tiny bruised fingers clung desperately to a rooftop that floated 90 miles across the Gulf, away from her home and family.
Alice was fair skinned with hair golden that flowed in curls down her back. Those golden locks would shine as a beacon and eventually call attention to her near lifeless body as it floated on the waves toward her destiny.
Her story has never been told, until now. This is a story of a beautiful little Creole girl who was washed out to sea on a rooftop during a devastating hurricane. Days later, she was found in the surf near death, but her will to survive was strong.
A childless couple rescued her from an angry sea and for over ten years Alice lived with her foster parents, believing her real parents dead. But were they?

    A Great Read

    I really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. I had to take the tissues out during the first chapter and cried several more times as I read about the ordeals Alice experienced throughout her life. What courage she had.
