In Sunlight, in A Beautiful Garden

Item Details

"In Sunlight, in a Beautiful Garden is the story of a bittersweet romance set against the backdrop of the Johnstown, Pennsylvania, flood, a tragedy that cost some 2,200 lives when the South Fork dam burst on Memorial Day weekend, 1889. The dam was the site of a gentlemen's club that attracted some of the wealthiest industrialists of the day - Henry Clay Frick, Andrew Mellon, and Andrew Carnegie - and served as a summertime idyll for the families of the rich." "In Sunlight, in a Beautiful Garden 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 deaths 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."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
