Description

It's hurricane season, and for one Keys community, the weather isn't the only thing in turmoil. "It's starting already. There's something fierce out there stirring everybody up. This wind is going to blow the earth into the sea." At 86 years old, Opal, Bahamian matriarch and purported seer, tries to guide her family through the coming storms: JoBe, the nephew to whose drug activities she casts a blind eye; T.C., her teenage granddaughter who's experiencing her sexual awakening; and Pearl, her niece whose marriage is its own tempest. The Thompson family isn't faring much better. For Jessica, strung out and determined to make peace with her past, returning to Key West is, perhaps, the worst decision she'd ever make, but it is the only thing she can do. Her husband, Mark, mailman, dreamer, now single father, struggles to maintain a sense of family for his teenage daughter Mia. Coming to grips with the loneliness and responsibility of single parenthood, he finds his life turned upside down by Jessica's return. And for octogenarians Bud and Caroline Johnson, they're just trying to weather one more summer of life's storms.show more
