Desdemona Hart, an aspiring artist, is torn between her loyalty to her father's Shakespeare Theater legacy and her steady but unexciting husband, and the romantic lure of a fellow artist and a successful career in the big city.  These themes are set in the fictional town of Cascade in the 1930s as war clouds gather and the state of Massachusetts decides whether to displace the residents and flood the town to create a reservoir. Those familiar with the Quabbin Reservoir story will appreciate the parallels, and also appreciate that the author successfully weaves several different themes together to create an intriguing story. A moving first novel.  Check Our Catalog
