O‘Hare is definitely better with a book.
Harrowing fictionalized account of the massive hurricane that struck the Florida Keys in 1930. Much of the story focuses on the veterans of WWI (white and black) who were working on a construction project in the area and how they were essentially abandoned by the federal government. Lafaye tackles themes of racism, classism, loyalty and family. Certainly not a “fluffy” summer novel, but worth reading.
