    Told in the alternating voices of Vivi and her husband, Big Shep, along with Sidda, her siblings Little Shep, Lulu, Baylor, as well as the almost-but-not-quite family Cheney and Willetta, Wells embraces nearly 30 years of life on their plantation in Thornton, Louisiana, where the cloying air of the bayou and a web of family secrets at once shelters, traps, and defines an utterly original community of souls.

    Overall

    I too felt sad to leave the characters in this gripping, captivating novel..Ms. Wells has a most precious gift. I would listen to 1000 books if she wrote them. The narrator did a tremendous job in capturing the essence of each character, and bringing each one to life. I also enjoyed Cali Lilly Ponder. I shared that one with my mother two years ago. We still make reference to it. I also plan to share this one with her. She probably feels like she has already read it, because I have told her so much about it already.

    Ms Wells, I am waiting on the next one. As far as I am concerned, you are up there with Elton John, Prince, and Mya Angelou in my book (brilliant artist that have no equal)!!!

    Beginning in 1864, Through the Storm chronicles the tumultuous lives of onetime lovers, Raimond Le Veq and Sable Fontaine. The Le Veq family was a proud, prominent black New Orleans family until their fortune was plundered in the chaos of the Civil War. It's the charge of former Union Major Raimond Le Veq to restore the lost wealth of his family. Raimond once loved a woman--the lusty, beautiful, and complex former slave, Sable Fontaine--but she coldly betrayed him during the war.

    "A different perspective"
    Overall

    I found the intermingling if history and romance a little awkward at times. However, it taught me a lot about the era that I did not realize. Additionally, it was well narrated. I came to care a lot about the characters. I may listen again, just to here the history lesson again. I feel very proud of those who sacrificed to make things better for our country.

    Not the best from this author. It came off like a not so great movie.
