Jonathan Evans works for Mr. Jack and Ms. Christie Zimmerman on Galveston Island. The cook is fantastic; the maid is lovely; the Zimmerman family has taken him in like a son. But he has secrets and someone is out to kill him. Another boy’s already died in his place by accident.
When the great storm hits the island, Jonathan must step up, do what needs to be done then guide his family into a new life.
