    Eyes in a Storm: How One Community Weathered Life After a Deadly Tornado

    Eyes in a Storm is a gripping account of a tragedy that ripped through this community and the lives of the people in it. From page one, Ms. McNew draws the reader into the storm. By the eloquent descriptions she uses, McNew made me feel as if I knew each person in this community, as if they were my neighbors, people in my community. As a mother, I sat in the rain with Christy Seals sobbing and worrying about her children. As a spectator, I sat in amazement as I watched the community members rebuild their property and their lives. This is a wonderful account of not only the storm, but the people whose lives were forever changed by the storm. I highly recommend this!

    Eyes in a Storm: How One Community Weathered Life After a Deadly Tornado

    This gripping account of the tornado that ripped through the small Alabama townships sweeps you along just like a storm's powerful winds! Ms. McNew's eloquent description of the people and the community make you feel as if you know them, they could be your neighbors, members of your community. As a mother, I sat by the tree in the rain with Christy Seals and shared her worry over her family and felt the helplessness she did. More than once I was brought to tears reading about the havoc and destruction this storm caused, both in terms of personal and property loss. I highly recommend this to anyone who wonders beyond the headlines to seeing how people go on to rebuild their homes and, more importantly their lives, after experiencing a horrific event.

    Great Accounts from Tornado Survivors

    I couldn't put this book down. It's so well-written and unlike any other book I've read. I would liken it to The Weather Channel's 'Storm Stories' program. I learned a lot about tornadoes, but really was moved by the stories from real-life survivors. I have never visited Alabama before, but I could immediately picture what this area looked like because of the excellent descriptions.
