superstition, heartfelt characters and thunderous destinies.
Tracey's book I sat down to read the beginning. It was not to
be. I could not put the book down until I finished it. I was not
prepared for the tears that would not stop. Knowing Father Tracey

looked so strong and inspired all his parishioners. This is a must read
book whether you went through Katrina or not.
