About the Novel

Relentless....this one word represents the message my novel will deliver to readers across various characters in addition to the setting. The below is not the book cover, however it is a glimpse into some of the meaningful parts and places mentioned within the novel.

The waterways, shack on the bayou, plantation replica, oil rigs, and the Louisiana blue iris all are symbolic to the setting and my novel.

From the MMC, Robert Brannon, and his evident control of the town of Acadianville, to the FMC, Savannah Brannon, who finds herself drawn to Dallas Redding, who is the complete opposite of what Robert has chosen for her, both strive to be in control but in different ways.

Other characters are presented within the story whose lives intertwine with Savannah. Knox Bailey, a super obsessive jock from South Carolina finds interest in local Adaleigh Shephard, a preppy rich girl that has no boundaries. Bennett Carlisle, Savannah's long-time friend, may seem shy and reserved - or is he playing everyone?

And finally - the Louisiana blue iris - known for its beauty but more for its resiliency to hurricanes that invade the region. They have persevered through the toughest storms as they claim their lay of the land in south Louisiana marshes. Their resilience to the wrath of storms that invade the still marshes where they thrive are a testament to their relentless nature and captivating beauty.
