Historical fiction set during the great flood of the Mississippi River in 1927. I liked the main story of the revenue agents looking for Bootleggers and the bond between Ingersol, Dixie Clay and the orphan baby. Lots of description of the town experiencing unending rain and rising rivers. The numerous flashbacks into their earlier lives were a bit too long and slowed the pace down. Interesting story - just wasn't a fan of how it was put together.

First time with this author & enjoyed the dialog, history & flow of his writing. Have not liked Crooked Letter. Very few stories of the South interest or satisfy me.

This was a well-written historical romance novel with just enough action to appeal to men also. It's readable and the story pulls you in, and it has strong likable characters. Main drawback: Too many coincidences. Of COURSE Ingersoll just happens to rescue Willy-the-baby/gives him to Dixie Clay/then ends up being in the right place at the right time to rescue them at the novel's end. The flood angle reminds me of In Sunlight In a Beautiful Garden.

This was a solid story that I enjoyed reading. In particular, the flood scene was really well done. I could picture the whole thing happening as if I were watching a movie. There were a few small spots where I thought the story was a bit rushed or underdeveloped but overall it was a good book.
