This snappy, sassy redemption story set in small-town Montana is “a wild and crazy debut novel by a talented young writer” (Jackie Collins), filled with an uproarious and unforgettable cast of characters you won’t want to leave behind.

Welcome to Quinn, Montana, population: 956. A town where nearly all of the volunteer firemen are named Jim, where the Dirty Shame—the only bar in town—refuses to serve mixed drinks (too much work), where the locals hate the newcomers (then again, they hate the locals, too), and where the town softball team has never even come close to having a winning season. Until now.

Rachel Flood has snuck back into town after leaving behind a trail of chaos nine years prior. She’s here to make amends, but nobody wants to hear it, especially her mother, Laverna. But with the help of a local boy named Jake and a little soul-searching, she just might make things right.

In the spirit of Empire Falls and A League of Their Own, with the caustic wit of Where’d You Go, Bernadette thrown in for good measure, Richard Fifield’s hilarious and heartwarming debut will have you laughing through tears.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Flood Girls is a wild and crazy debut novel by a talented young writer. Edgy and original, it’s worth the trip.”

    Jackie Collins, New York Times bestselling author

  • “From the first page of The Flood Girls, I knew Richard Fifield was a extraordinary force of nature and his debut novel a masterful tour-de-force. This novel is like Richard Russo + E. Annie Proulx + Truman Capote, if Capote were alive today and narrating a reality show about small-town Montana on Bravo. You will be awed.”

    Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Excellent…Fifield has created a colorful, quirky, and amusing cast of small-town characters…This hilarious and profane story takes a tragic turn at the end, revealing just how fragile love and friendship can be.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Fifield’s debut is an exaggerated, no-holds barred portrait of a small town that doesn’t easily forget or forgive, and it turns alternately laugh-out-loud funny and sadly all-too-true.”
