Jane Kirkpatrick skillfully weaves the personal story of Ivy Cromartie Stranahan with the history of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This beautiful yet powerful historical fiction reminds its readers that history is made by individuals and defines individuals. Things that can be mentioned in passing, like illness, hurricanes or financial discrepancies can actually change the course of history. And the decisions one person makes for the sake of others can rescue an entire people group. The weaving of words in this book has inspired me to look differently at my life and to see Florida with new eyes.
