THE GALVESTON CHRONICLES by Audra Martin D’Aroma

Hi Friends! I know it’s been forever since I last posted something of real bookish value on here, but I assure you my absence has not been wasted. I’m oh-so-thrilled to let you know that Rozlyn Press’s second novel has officially been released!

Buy your copy now at Barnes & Noble or Amazon, or request a copy from your local independent bookstore!

 

In the stifling days before the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, Isadora Khaled dreams of 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.

    Alayne, it is so amazing to see your Rozlyn Press symbol at Barnes & Noble. I can’t wait to go to our local store and ask them to order your book! I’ve always said you’re one of the most amazing people I know on the planet – so glad I get the honor of calling you daughter. Can’t wait for Book #3!
