Book review

Title: “Plant My Feet on Higher Ground”

Author: Ila E. Flinn

Publisher: Trafford Publishing

Genre: fiction

Overview: I heard many stories about the Galveston Flood when I was a child, although I then grasped none of its tragedy. I realized what an impact the storm had left with my mother and her family, so I decided in the fall of 1979 to write this story beginning with that Galveston Hurricane.

Author’s background: Flinn’s freelance newspaper and magazine feature articles were printed in San Diego city and County area periodicals in the 1970s during a break between state and parochial school teaching jobs. As a single mother following a divorce in 1970, she has moved back to her hometown of Clovis, which also happens to be the setting for the conclusion of this book.

Release date: Has been released

The book is available in the Clovis-Carver Public Library.
