Abby (abbysallenger) | 9 comments Hello everyone,

Looking forward to talking over the next few days about my narrative nonfiction book ISLAND IN A STORM: a Rising Sea, a Vanishing Coast, and a Nineteenth Century Disaster that Warns of a Warmer World…

I think you’ll find it an intriguing story, and maybe learn a bit about the environment, beaches, and great storms (painlessly!)

Checkout the brief Prologue from my book, which is in my Goodreads Profile at

Also, checkout a short BookTV interview about ISLAND IN A STORM

Join us… Looking forward to answering your questions…

Best, Abby
