Summary
"The year is 1927. Rains swell the mighty Mississippi which threatens to burst its banks and engulf everything in its path. When federal revenue agent Ted Ingersoll and his partner arrive in the town of Hobnob to investigate the disappearance of two fellow agents, they find a baby boy abandoned in the middle of a crime scene. Ingersoll, an orphan raised by nuns, is determined to find the child a home and his search leads to bootlegger Dixie Clay Holliver. The Tilted World is a story of seemingly ordinary people who find hope and deliverance where they least expect it--in each other"--Back cover
Summary
The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 is the backdrop for one of my favorite historical novels of the last few years. Bootleggers, revenuers, an orphaned child, extreme weather, a disintegrating marriage and romance. There are no dull characters or moments in this beautifully-written story. -- Janet Lockhart for LibraryReads
