She was no Lady: A personal journey of recovery through Hurricane KatrinaAfter I received Father 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 personally, I had failed to realize the mental anguish he suffered. He looked so strong and inspired all his parishioners. This is a must read book whether you went through Katrina or not.
