ISBN: 0976235633 Brick Hill Publishing. 2009 While chasing a dream he could not fulfill, Campbell Smith is searching for answers as to why survivors of hurricanes, himself included, would risk life, family, and wealth to return again and again to the Gulf Coast. What is this love affair with the seashore?
Margaret, the woman he has loved since nineteen, is addicted to seashore living -- even after losing so much in two hurricanes, 1875 and 1886, and fervently believes there is no quality of life away from the coast. She wishes to die there, but not in Indianola, Texas where she lost her family and business.
She will go to Galveston where it is safe. Arthur will die with her if it means they can be together. She pushed him away for twenty-seven years due to religious beliefs.
Was he wrong? Will God judge him now? Will he live?
