Book Description

Thirteen people left their homes in Suwannee County on Friday, happy, excited, looking forward to two full days of carefree togetherness at Dekle Beach, on Florida's Gulf Coast.  Their destination led them to the very heart of the path to be taken by a giant of a storm with size and power that nobody could foresee.
The Storm of the Century that struck the Gulf Coast of Florida in March of 1993 wreaked havoc all along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Before the days of Doppler radar, the most information meteorologists of that time could provide were falling temperatures, gale force winds, dangerous currents and tides that could be higher than normal.
To those who make Florida their home, that is not a terrifying forecast. Floridians live from June through September with the threat of hurricanes hanging over their heads. A week-end at the beach is a mini vacation. It's a chance to get away from the same walls, the same job, the sameness of everyday life. A weekend at the beach is not something canceled because of bad weather.
This family has been featured on National Geographic Channel, the Discovery Channel and discussed briefly on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
This is the story of that storm, at that place in time. This is their story.

Sad but true story that happened here in Taylor County, Florida. Not the best written book but a good read!

This really isn't the type of book I usually read, it was happy, but sad too. Since I live in Florida it was very real to me, we battled it here where we live also. I thought it was very well written and will (and have) recommended it to my reading friends. Sandra is improving her style with each book, I'm waiting to read the next one, since she has written such a variety.

I grew up at Dekle and my family lost our house in the storm. This book answered some long unanswered questions that we had. It doesn't seem like 20 years ago the storm happened. Every time I go down there I reflect back, but it will never be the same

More About the Author

I can't remember when I didn't write fiction. I know I had to learn how to write first, but even before that, I made up stories and I'm positive that every single one of them had either a horse or a dog, and maybe both in it.
Growing up poor, there wasn't money for horses or higher education, but it didn't stop me from writing. I always had a spiral notebook and several sharp pencils handy and I read. I read every horse related book in every school library in every school that I attended. Teachers would tell me that I could not make a book report about any horse books. (Major sadface!)
I love romance books and anything Native American so that's a natural resource for me.
Although I did not ride except very occasionally until I was twenty years old, I later worked several years for an old fashioned horse trainer who taught me so very much. I put miles on the colts he had at the barn for training and even showed in preformance classes a little.
I was not able to go to college, but later worked in a local elementary school as a Paraprofessional and retired from that job. The years I spent working with horses helped prepare me for that. Children and animals both learn in small steps, they need to know you like them and they need to be able to trust you. Horses taught me that.
I've been married for 41 years to the same wonderful man. We have two sweet daughters who aren't afraid to think for themselves, four grandsons who are considerate and fun to be with and one granddaughter in whom I see a lot of myself. We also have another grandchild on the way who we are looking forward to spoiling.
