Sinopsis:

"Audra Martin D'Aroma weaves Galveston Island and those hurricanes into her story like Faulkner wove Yoknapatawpha County into Absalom, Absalom!, where the land was always not far behind in any dealings that the characters hatched up. The Galveston Chronicles is a wonderful and complex read; there is nothing timid about her writing. She has a unique gift with words. I can't wait to see her next book." Diane Wilson, author of Diary of an Eco Outlaw
"This book is a must read for anyone who loves the Island and treasures its history. Audra offers an intriguing look at Galveston history through the eyes of those whose lives were inextricably entwined with the fate of the 'Treasure Isle.'", Stan Blazyk, author of A Century of Galveston Weather: 1900-1999 People and the Elements on a Barrier Island
"The Galveston Chronicles was a really good read, full of interesting and useful information.", Gary Cartwright, author of Galveston: A History of the Island

In the stifling days before the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, Isadora Khaled begins to dream about catfish and murdering her daughter, setting off a chain of events that will not be resolved until Hurricane Ike in 2008. The descendents of Isadora are defined by and eventually named after the hurricanes that shape their lives: Fatima, who enters into a doomed relationship with a visiting artist in 1961; her drug-numbed daughter Carla, desperate to get home in 1983; and Carla's daughter Alicia, reunited with her heritage on a modern island embracing disaster culture in 2008. An epic tale, THE GALVESTON CHRONICLES holds a mirror to the transformation of an unforgettable island, looking at the Gulf Coast region through the eyes of these women in the days preceding and following Galveston's major hurricanes.
