Abstract:

"Due to years of catastrophic hurricanes, the Gulf Coast has been sealed off by a government-drawn boundary called Line. Those who remain below the Line, like Cohen, live hand-to-mouth in this lawless, unforgiving land. When a violent attack finally forces him come out of seclusion, Cohen heads north, and along the way encounters Aggie, a fanatical, snake-handling preacher who helms a colony of captive women and children and has dangerous visions of repopulating the barren region. Now Cohen is faced with a decision: continue to the Line along, or try to shepherd Aggie's prisoners to freedom with the biggest hurricane yet bearing down-and Cohen harboring a secret that may pose the greatest threat of all."--Page 4 of cover.
