Prohibition, bootlegging, murder, and an orphaned baby figure prominently in this story of Hobnob, Mississippi, 1927. Federal agent Ingersoll delivers an orphaned baby to Dixie Clay and is charmed by the young woman. Little does he realize he's falling in love with a bootlegger and a married one, at that. As a great flood looms, saboteurs are dynamiting the levees, saving New Orleans but leaving Hobnob under water. The boundless power of raging water escalates, and everyone struggles to survive in this amazing story of the courage and grit of the complex, color characters in desperate times!
