What happens at the center of a life-changing storm such as Katrina or Camille? Charlotte Morgan imagines what such a disaster could be like for the people involved in One August Day. According to Mary Carroll in Booklist, "A browbeaten woman grasps the damage her cruel husband is doing to their three children. A runaway teenager tries to make a place for himself. A teacher heads for a new life with the man she loves. A prison escapee plots biblical revenge. An elderly woman in intermittent contact with reality rules the ancient mansion she hasn't left in years. A vivid and involving story." One August Day was nominated for the Virginia Literary Prize in Fiction.
