Storm Surge reviews


“The search for family and belonging in the midst of the dangerous bootlegging industry. … Edith must determine what the people in her life, Leroy included, mean to her and what she will sacrifice for them. Storm Surge raises questions around motherhood and the anxieties that face many women as they care for the children in their lives. Edith’s struggle against conservative gender roles begins in A Gathering Storm and is continued throughout Storm Surge, in particular relating to her maternal capabilities.

Storm Surge introduces us to a new Edith Duffy that is beginning to allow herself to form emotional attachments and become vulnerable once more. It is that vulnerability that shows her progress and recovery following the events of A Gathering Storm, beyond just the development of the bootlegging business itself.

The desire for family is the heart of Storm Surge.” Independent Books Review
