In the Aftermath of the Storm: Stories of Hope and Healing
“Like its predecessor, In the Eye of the Storm, the stories, poetry, and images contained in this book come from the many residents who survived Hurricane Michael and who continue to work tirelessly to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. I am grateful for their willingness to share their stories and art with me.”Jennifer N. Fenwick, Editor
In the Aftermath of the Storm, released on Amazon on October 3, 2019, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael. Like its predecessor, In the Eye of the Storm, this follow-up book is a collaborative effort, filled with stories, poetry, and images from the Florida Panhandle during the year following that day last October that changed our lives and our home forever.
This past year has brought many changes. While some areas are showing signs of recovery and rebuilding, other areas look just as they did the morning after the storm. None of us who survived that day emerged unchanged. Whether it was the destruction all around us or the grief we carried in our hearts, October 10, 2018 will forever be a defining moment in our lives.
In the Aftermath of the Storm continues our story. It’s been a year of tears and grief, a year of frustration and disappointment, a year of hope and healing. The road ahead is long, but by the grace of God and the strength of our faith and conviction, we will go on. We will continue rebuilding. We will continue moving forward. But we will never forget.

Four Weeks: A Journey from Darkness
“Really, I was just keeping a journal, as I always have, during some of the darkest days of my life. It was after I reached the other side that I realized, these words are not simply mine to keep. They tell so much more than just my story. They are the words of everyone of us who has ever battled addiction and loss of control. And they were always meant to be shared.”~ Jennifer N. Fenwick
FIVE STARS! “An inspirational story about how God helps us through our struggles when we surrender all to Him. The author is a gifted writer and you can tell from the poetry that the words were laid on her heart by God. Definitely worth the read.”
“This book is not just about four weeks. It is the story of one woman and her desire to reach those in darkness and despair with the warmth and light of hope. Please know if this book has found its way to you, God’s peace, passion, and power of love is a gift for the taking.”Laura McManus, LCSW

On October 10, 2018, Hurricane Michael barreled through the Florida Panhandle a strong Category 4, almost 5, storm. In the Eye of the Storm: Stories of Survival and Hope from the Florida Panhandle is a collection of inspiring stories from people who rode out the storm, were first on the scene in the aftermath, who weathered those first difficult weeks after Michael slammed into the area and those who came from far and wide to assist the devastated region.
It’s the residents, the ones who awoke the following morning to a world inexplicably altered, that are at the heart of these stories. The survivors. The broken. The devastated. It’s their voices that tell the story best. These are the stories of the brave, the hopeful, and the determined as much as they are of the suffering and the brokenhearted. Their faith, perseverance in the face of such daunting circumstances, and their relentless determination to prevail are inspiring and so worthy of recognition. In the Eye of the Storm honors the resilience and beauty of the people who call the Northwest Florida Panhandle home. Available on Amazon!
