Publisher's Summary

Katrina, Rita, and Wilma are names that will always be remembered as violent storms that changed the lives of many people and the face of the lands they called home. Life After Katrina chronicles in real time the communication struggles of one family between Minnesota and hurricane-ravaged Mississippi. The only way they can contact one another is through the Guestbook feature on author Barbie Root's personal Web page.

In the immediate aftermath of the storm, Barbie's family members' encouraging messages and constant communication are her only connections to a world beyond suffering and despair. After the initial shock and storm-induced panic wear off, the message board continues to connect Barbie and her family through many more ups and downs, happiness, and challenges.

Readers across the nation, both affected and unaffected by natural disasters, will identify with Barbie's story through the common threads of love, laughter, and family. The Root family proves that even in the midst of anguish and uncertainty, sickness and death, there is still optimism, hope, and determination in Life After Katrina.
