Louisville, Ky., January, 1937. A new year begins with the hope that the city is leaving behind the desperate days of the Depression -- until a record flood forces two-thirds of its citizens from their homes.

Miranda Kinley doesn't want to evacuate. She doesn't want to leave her home, her haven from the world. But when she is surrounded by floodwater, her husband missing, and her best friend's young daughter in her care, she may not have a choice.

A dramatic tale blended with humor and mystery, the story follows a young married couple, torn between his desire for a family and her doubt that she'd make a good mother, as their lives and the lives of their neighbors are forever affected by a devastating flood.
