The Displacements

'A gripping, full-throttle page-turner... puts the reader right in the eye of the emotional storm' Miranda Cowley Heller, author of THE PAPER PALACE _________________________________________ An adrenaline-fueled story of lives upended and privilege lost in a swiftly changing world. Daphne Larsen-Hall has every reason to believe that her life as an artist in a luxury Miami house with her surgeon husband, Brantley, and their family, will carry on forever. But Luna - the world's first Category 6 hurricane - changes everything. With Brantley missing in the aftermath of the massive storm, Daphne and their children find themselves in a vast shelter for the displaced a thousand miles from home, their finances abruptly cut off. As days turn into weeks, the family confronts losses and circumstances they never imagined, and a world that has changed beneath their feet. When tensions in the shelter reach a breaking point, Daphne's resilience is put to the ultimate test as she realises 'normal' will never return - and faces the shocking truths that threaten to tear her family apart once more. _________________________________________ Praise for Bruce Holsinger's The Gifted School: 'More than a touch of Liane Moriarty's Big Little Lies' Observer 'An incisive inspective of privilege, race and class' New York Times 'Snapping with tension, this is a book for our times' Shari Lapena 'Exposes how easily a mix of good intentions, self-delusions and minor sins can escalate' The New Yorker
