“Reviewed By Heather Stockard for Readers’ Favorite

Suzanne Jones was six years old when Tropical Storm Agnes swept up the east coast and morphed into an extratropical cyclone, dropping nineteen inches of rain on the Susquehanna River Valley in Northern Pennsylvania in less than a day. Rivers and streams overflowed their banks at their highest recorded levels. Suzanne and her family were forced to evacuate their home and retreat to higher ground. The flood destroyed all their worldly goods and the house they loved, and they found themselves starting over from scratch. From the Flood recounts the many ways that the loss impacted their lives and forced them all to adapt and change. It’s both a coming-of-age story and a story of one family’s fight to survive and thrive after a natural disaster.

Suzanne Jones’ From the Flood is the harrowing account of her experiences in the Great Flood of 1972, when the Susquehanna River crested its levees, unleashing vast destruction. Jones tells the story from the perspective of a child watching terrible things unfold. She opens up about her relationships with her parents, siblings, and friends and the way the flood touched them all and impacted their lives years after the waters had dried up. She writes in a poignant and candid voice and includes many fascinating details about growing up in the 70s. Jones offers a different view of a natural disaster, channeling the innocence and resiliency of children to tell a tale not just of tragedy and loss but also of hope and new beginnings.”
