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.
