Publisher's Summary

Two mothers and their teenage daughters, whose lives collide in a fatal car crash, take turns narrating Ellen Urbani's breathtaking novel Landfall, set in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Eighteen-year-olds Rose and Rosebud have never met, but they share a birth year, a name, and a bloody pair of sneakers. Rose's quest to atone for the accident that kills Rosebud, a young woman so much like herself but for the color of her skin, unfolds alongside Rosebud's battle to survive the devastating flooding in the Lower Ninth Ward and to find help for her unstable mother. These unforgettable characters give voice to the dead of the storm and, in a stunning twist, demonstrate how what we think we know can make us blind to what matters most.

    "Outstanding Story and Narration!"

    This is the story of two single mothers and their daughters - one black living in New Orleans and the other white, living in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Their lives inadvertently and tragically intertwine after Hurricane Katrina. Like an onion being unpeeled, we begin to learn the backstory of each - their similarities and their differences - as we glimpse the way Katrina affected so many people and in such different ways. It is a well written story made even better by a superb narration.
