From A Woman's Point of View
We speak with Mary Anna Evans, author of Floodgates.
Legend and romance drip from the lacy balconies of New Orleans as surely as Spanish moss drips from the branches of the city's ancient oaks. In New Orleans, Faye Longchamp is happy just to get up in the morning and go to work. But centuries of tragedy shadow the city--wars, slavery, and a monumental flood that killed a thousand people and still threatens to wash all that history away.
Faye and her team of archaeologists, fighting to save New Orleans' past, are horrified when a corpse surfaces that's far too new to be an archaeological find.
