If they didn't mention Hurricane Sandy on the web page it wouldn't be at all obvious which nation was being referred to. There are more countries in the world (and using this forum) than the USA you know.

My library has The Round House in its Overdrive collection. I put a hold on it, I have enjoyed her work in the past. I haven't looked for the others.
