Publisher's Summary

In hurricane-ravaged Galveston, a storm of betrayal is brewing.

Nineteen-year-old Grace's golden age is just beginning. She and her mother live a privileged life. Beautiful and talented, Grace is looking forward to a pleasant summer celebrating her engagement to a wealthy young gentleman.

But when her lovely, charming, and disgraced cousin Etta arrives, Grace finds her place in society - and in her mother's heart - threatened. Etta enchants everyone as she maneuvers to secure a station in Galveston's upper echelons. Grace, in a reckless moment, reveals Etta's scandalous past, and as punishment, she's sent to work in Galveston's back alleys, helping the poor. There, a silent waif known only as Miss Girl opens Grace's eyes to new love and purpose. She's determined to save this girl who lost her entire family in the hurricane and now slips along the shadows of the unfinished seawall with a mysterious resolve.

Soon, the lives of the three young women will converge as betrayal, mistaken identity, and a family secret that sweeps them toward a future that defies all expectations.

Brave women

This book brought the reality of a long ago tragedy. I was unaware of this tragic hurricane in our history until listening to this story. This book was a great source of insight of what happened that tragic day in 1900 and the effects it had on the people it effected. How I wish so many things could have been different for the young girl it follows, it shadows nothing, only her reality and the reality of another young girl.
This book has stayed with me...making me feel very thankful for what I have and whom I have in my life.
