Oleanders in June
by Whitney Vandiver

Galveston Bookshop will host a book signing on Saturday, August 24th, 3:00-5:00 p.m. for author Whitney Vandiver with her new Galveston historical novel.

The setting is Galveston in 1900. A year of training in the Signal Corps did nothing to prepare Alfred Ridgeway for his new post with the U.S. Weather Bureau on the edge of the Texas gulf. Alfred finds himself thrust into the strained relationship of renowned climatologist Isaac Cline and his assisting brother, Joseph. With rising tensions in the office, Alfred begins to expand life beyond his duties at the bureau and soon meets the extraordinary Florence Keller.

As the summer heats up, the bureau cuts ties with a valuable source of information, leaving the Galveston Weather Office blind during the peak of hurricane season. When a telegram warns of a storm in the gulf, Alfred will have to choose between following protocol or trusting his instincts.


Whitney Vandiver is an avid reader who wrote her first story when she was eight years old. She is now a bibliophile, with more books than shelves, who writes historical fiction and mysteries. She resides in Pearland, Texas with her spouse and cat.
