Two weeks before the historic 1900 Galveston Storm that killed at least 6,000 people, Catherine Wainwright leaves Ohio and marries Oscar Williams, a dairy farmer on the rural end of Galveston Island.  Catherine’s arrival is a shock to Nan Ogden who has been raising Oscar’s young son.  As Catherine and Nan cope with changes in their circumstances, a powerful hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico gathers strength and spins toward Galveston.
