In Sunlight, in a Beautiful Garden
This story imagines the lives that were lived, lost and irreparably changed by a tragedy that could have been averted: Frank Fallon, a Civil War veteran whose wife never recovered from the early death of their children and who finds himself enamored of her best friend; James Talbot, a lawyer for the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club tormented by the blatant disregard for the dam's safety and his own conflicting ambitions; and James's daughter, Nora, whose summerlong courtship by Daniel Fallon, Frank's surviving son, will haunt her for the rest of her life.

Well written but the prose was a stream of consciousness... I had trouble relating to the characters and I think the multiple sub-plots made it more complicated than necessary! Read full review

Loved this book so much! I've read it twice (something I don't do often). It's an historical fiction about the Johnstown flood and it's beautifully written, informative with a great story line. Read full review
