Happy Friday! Any big plans for the weekend? Arctic cold here so I’m planning on sitting in front of the fire and reading most of the weekend. 

William Kent Krueger packs a lot in this audio original historical fiction novella. It’s the story of a dangerous and daring rescue of a family during the devastating Mississippi River flood in 1927. Three convicts from a local prison are allowed out to help a man navigate the swollen river to try to rescue his brother and niece. Their home is surrounded by a levee, but the flooding is so great that the family and their two servants are still in grave danger. Desperate men do desperate things, especially when time is running out as the floodwaters rise. 

Krueger quickly fleshes out the characters, showing us loyalty, love, hubris, and evil. This is a man-versus-nature story that also encompasses redemption, compassion, and second chances. Kreuger’s prose is beautiful and the narration by J.D. Jackson is powerful. A remarkable story that can be devoured in one sitting and will stay with you for a long time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you Simon & Schuster Audio and Libro.fm for the advanced listener audiobook. The Levee will be available February 27th.
