I was stunned to realize that this tragedy had even happened. The storm and what happened to the veterans who endured it was just amazing, thrilling and incredibly sad. Hemingway came to assess the damage after the fact and was appalled at what he saw and experienced. This book was hard to put down and I really learned a lot about hurricanes, the state of our country back in 1935 and on a deeper level, I learned of a whole new side of the brilliant writer Hemingway.
