Omg, every single word is our truth. I just read the first 3 chapters to my husband. After the 1st chapter or 2 typically he would unmute the TV and say he was done with it. But after your first chapter, we had to read on…. you said our emotions right out loud. We stopped for tonight right after the 3rd chapter, not because we don’t want to read every word, but because we are wide open and vulnerable and need to step away for today. It’s intense, and horrific, but most of all completely true. We both literally got goosebumps when you said that at this very moment, the storm is coming. It’s gripping and profound and important. Your language and first person narrative are perfect and easy to read for any one of us. I can’t wait to read more tomorrow. Bravo brother.
