Beyond the news headlines and apocalyptic images,
The Irma Diaries takes readers straight into the heart of a Category 5 hurricane, the strongest to ever make landfall in Atlantic history at the time and now second only to this year's Hurricane Dorian.
The Irma Diaries transposes readers to The Virgin Islands on September 6, 2017 and in a very intimate, personal style captures the harrowing, yet amazing and inspiring and, at times, amusing accounts of the ordinary-turned-extraordinary people who battled through Hurricane Irma and came out alive.

"The ability to “live” the moments with the contributors, beautifully presented by the author.
"It was nothing like I expected...I cried, I laughed, then I cried some more... It is amazing that so many persons survived based on the stories. They truly come alive and the author did an excellent job in capturing the essence of the experience. This is want tenacity and survival sounds like!!!"
Ms. Angela did a superb job in giving “the outer world” a glimpse of what Virgin Islanders went through during and immediately after hurricane Irma. This book was an awesome read and was well put together. This real life captivating piece was an educational mystifying comical thriller that I will recommend to anyone interested in the events of this hurricane, disasters, life lessons or who simply wants a good read.
