Review

"One of the more interesting historical fiction works lately, Ms. Popp's tale is definitely worth the read!"  
-- InD'Tale Magazine

"I felt like I was reading something new and fresh versus a subject that has already been done a million times before." 
-- Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Book Awards

From the Back Cover

Set on Galveston Island, this historical fiction tale chronicles the lives of four survivors of the Great Hurricane of 1900: JOHN, a hard-drinking, hard-working dockworker...SARAH MICHELLE, a happily married wife and mother...DEAN, a daring gambler not afraid to use his Southern charm...and SEAN, a young boy with a secret. They have only this one thing in common: they lived another day, while thousands around them did not. Thrust together after the storm, they attempt to deal with the aftermath of what life has dealt them. And they find, as with most catastrophic events, the real storm begins after the demon wind and driving rain die down.

This book was easy reading. It just kind of flowed. It left me interested in what happened to the characters as their life progressed. I would love to read a sequel.

THE STORM AFTER is a wild, turbulent ride. The mesh of history and character development is seamless. I was riveted to the book and as soon as I finished it, I passed it on to my Mother, who loved it as well. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed The Storm After by Gina Popp. It's a story that you can get into the characters quickly. I personally enjoyed how the storyline intertwined with Texas history. This book leaves you wanting to know what happens next. I'm looking forward to her next book.

A great character driven story about friendship, love and survival among the chaos of disaster. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it.

I picked this up.. and started to read.. and before I knew it.. I was halfway through the book. It's one of those rare books that reads somewhat like a journal. In this case.. a journal of several characters. There's no guessing about what the various characters were thinking or doing.

The hurricane in Galveston in September of 1900.. was one of the worst natural disasters to occur in the United States. In the blink of an eye.. the nearly 50,000 citizens were cut off from the entire world. This is a story of how they coped.. what they saw.. and how they survived!

The author must have done some major researching prior to writing this delicious tale. Quite literally a seven course meal.. served upon a the finest of china! A true delight to any reader.

This is a very interesting book, and I found in compelling in several ways, but I just could not bring myself to give it four stars. Rating books, of course, is purely subjective. I am sure there are those will would disagree with me on this, and more power to them.

Pros:
The author created a strong cast of characters, each of them well-drawn, and with their own quirks and flaws as well as strongly redeeming characteristics. Ms. Popp rightly centered the majority of the story after the horrible hurricane that devastated Galveston in 1900, for it was after the storm that the real hardships began. The storm was but one day. The aftermath will last forever. Each character held his/her own surprises that were slowly revealed. Each had a unique story that became interwoven with the stories of the other characters simply because they were among the very few survivors of the storm.

Ms. Popp also did a magnificent job of researching the Galveston hurricane, for many of the details of the damage and recovery efforts were clearly gleaned from historical documents. For example, bodies were hurriedly gathered and cremated on makeshift pyres. Many survivors would never know what happened to their friends and relatives, as the storm left at least 6,000 dead - perhaps many more - and the prevention of disease from decaying bodies, humans and animals, was paramount. Ms. Popp tells us about survivors being forced at gunpoint to collect bodies and burn them. The survivors lived through a time that was truly horrifying.

Cons:
I found the writing style to be overly simplistic, and reminiscent of the style that one finds in books written for older children.
