Introduction

Anything can happen on Mardi Gras day in New Orleans. As 1925 ends, spirited flapper Rosamond St. Rochelle meets two men. Burke Boylan is rich and well-connected in New Orleans. Pierre Landry, a Cajun doctor, plans to return to the bayou backwaters to practice. Both would like to have Rosamond, the newly proclaimed Queen of the Mardi Gras Ball, at their side. But, Roz longs for a career of her own as one of the New Women of the Twenties. A fateful encounter on Mardi Gras day causes Roz to make missteps and mistakes in her life. She must overcome personal tragedy and the forces of nature during the Great Flood of 1927 to find the right man and the place where she truly belongs.

This book was beautifully written and flowed so well that you were in the story immediately. It was a great story with many historical facts weaved into the plot.
