On the last day of summer camp when I was fourteen, I was called out of the riding ring and told abruptly that my father had died suddenly. It was his heart. I needed to pack up. I had just won a blue ribbon riding an impossible horse named Retreat that I had to spur over every jump. I'd planned...

Why did I write this book? As time went by following Hurricane Katrina, and we talked with more people, we began to hear a recurring story. We saw and heard from many very good hearted people who were trying to do what they could to help in various ways, but were left feeling betrayed when the...
