'Tense, claustrophobic, and all too imaginable' Diane Chamberlain, author of The Last House on the Street

'A gripping, full-throttle page-turner' Miranda Cowley Heller, author of The Paper Palace

_________________________________________



An adrenaline-fuelled story of lives upended and privilege lost in a swiftly changing world.


Daphne Larsen-Hall has every reason to believe that her life as an artist in a luxury Miami house with her surgeon husband, Brantley, and their family, will carry on forever.

But Luna - the world's first Category 6 hurricane - changes everything. With Brantley missing in the aftermath of the massive storm, Daphne and their children find themselves in a vast shelter for the displaced a thousand miles from home, their finances abruptly cut off.

As days turn into weeks, the family confronts losses and circumstances they never imagined, and a world that has changed beneath their feet. When tensions in the shelter reach a breaking point, Daphne's resilience is put to the ultimate test as she realises 'normal' will never return - and faces the shocking truths that threaten to tear her family apart once more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A riveting and humbling reminder of how precarious our lives are -- Mary Beth Keane, bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes
A propulsive family drama and a provocative story of human dignity, human indignity, and the deeper meanings of home -- Miranda Cowley Heller, bestselling author of The Paper Palace
Urgent, powerful, unputdownable -- Amitav Ghosh
Brilliantly imagined and terrifyingly believable * Kirkus *
The Displacements is tense, claustrophobic, and all too imaginable. A reminder that disaster doesn't only happen to other people, that in a heartbeat each of us can be put to the test in a desperate search for physical and emotional survival. Holsinger's beautifully drawn characters are made even more human by their relatable vulnerability in this gripping, twisty drama -- Diane Chamberlain
