A native writer returns home to New Orleans amid success with a novel loosely about her life and family there. While there she confronts the pains of a dysfunctional family, a history of dark, hidden events, and a sister with whom she has had a painful and antagonistic relationship her whole life. Lingering love and attachment to the black maid who really raised her, and a new love she unexpectedly encounters while there spark strong new feelings within her. But the arrival of Hurricane Katrina while she is there puts everything at risk, including her life and those around her. As the city is destroyed by the hurricane, her family and life are almost destroyed also, but are pulled back from the abyss through bravery, love and eventual reconciliation.
