‘Bayou Cabin Escape’ by Edna Ramsay

“Quiet place to write,” read the ad in a popular magazine for writers. A photo depicted a secluded cabin with a pirogue next to it on the bank of a bayou in southwest Arkansas. Gardenias, hydrangeas, and daffodils bloomed outside the cozy cabin. Wisteria hung from the trees above it. This quiet place seemed just what recently-widowed Emily Woolfe needed–just for a couple of weeks to finish editing her first novel. The kids were both off to college now, and she would take Crash, her shepkita, along on the trip. During their first night in the cabin, Arab countries, united in their hatred against President Trump, invade the United States at the Mexican border. What’s more, Emily and Crash endure a terrible storm that night. The storm uproots trees and knocks out power to the cabin. Emily stays put. Walking in the bayou one evening, she discovers a twenty-year-old journal that belonged to a young woman who had grown up not far from the cabin. Emily learned the woman in the journal had loved the man who inherited the cabin and rented it to her. A staunch supporter of President Trump, Heath did not have a lot in common with Emily, but the two will become friends and allies as Emily learns the deep secrets of Dorcheat Bayou, and the friends struggle to survive in war.
