It is Easter week, 1913. Our true story unfolds with the anticipation and the excitement of a best-selling novel. Writing an hour by hour, day by day diary of the incredible weather events of that infamous week 1913, Geoff Williams develops characters that tug at our hearts in the few moments we know them, and paints a gripping picture of the many towns and states through which the totally unexpected weather would rage throughout the Midwest...from small towns to major urban centers.
