About the book

In the wake of the world’s first Category 6 hurricane, members of an affluent family must travel hundreds of miles to a FEMA megashelter, where their new community includes an insurance-agent-turned-drug dealer, a group of vulnerable children, and a dedicated relief worker trying to keep the peace. Will “normal” ever return? A suspenseful read plotted on a vast national tapestry, The Displacements thrillingly explores what happens when privilege is lost and resilience is tested in a swiftly changing world.
