Overview

Engineer Victoria and her husband, Kevin, purchased the house of their dreams on the Caloosahatchee River in Southwest Florida in 2016. Although the house was over forty years old, the couple happily endured various home repair and improvement projects knowing that the stunning beauty of the home's location was well worth any aggravation. Their blissful state of mind was shattered less than a year after they purchased the property when Hurricane Irma paid an unwelcome visit.

The hurricane's horrific damage to their beloved home was only the beginning of their agonies. The tense saga of dealing with a dysfunctional property insurance company was then superseded by the convoluted process for getting their house reconstructed to the current building code.

The cliffhanger ending is followed by lessons learned that are beneficial to anyone living in a hurricane-prone area.

Author Angela R. Newland grew up in the central Ohio area and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from The Ohio State University. She spent the first half of her engineering career working for the City of Columbus, Ohio. The second half of her engineering career was spent working as the Vice President of Planning and Engineering for the Columbus Airport Authority, and then in a similar position at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida.

Angela retired from full time engineering work in 2016. She and her husband Ron then purchased an older home on the picturesque Caloosahatchee River in Southwest Florida. Her first published book, The River House, is a non-fiction book based on her experiences at this home before, during, and after Hurricane Irma ripped through Southwest Florida in 2017.

Now living in east Tennessee, Angela enjoys gardening, crocheting, traveling, hiking, running, and writing. She has completed one marathon and over a dozen half marathons. Her next books will be a series of autobiographical fiction narratives based on her life as an airport engineering executive.
