Holly’s hurricane is a historical fiction set in 2040. A hurricane hits New York badly causing Holly to move to England and live with her ailing parents. While she deals with her new environment, falling in love and dealing with her professional capabilities, she decides to go back in time and space, as they say, in order to wall through the ruins of New York after the devastation.
Holly’s mental health is another issue as she begins to hallucinate. I appreciated the fact that she was an Architect. I believe the authors choice of giving her that profession was very suited as she used to design factories and destroy historical buildings in order to implement her designs.
The literature was strong and the story was well put together. I think the strength of this fictional story was on how the character’s personality grew, and how detailed the descriptions were.
The story is not as long. I liked how climate change was an influential factor for the storyline. It made the reader consider the inevitable future we face today as well.
I recommend this book to historical fiction readers.
