SWEPT AWAY

new SW cover pageA Neglected Dam, A Forbidden Love, a Doomed Valley

A Young Adult, Historical Thriller set against the 1889 Johnstown Flood! 

In 1889, Johnstown Pennsylvania is Booming – riding the wave of the Industrial Revolution.  For 18 year old Samuel Wulff, it is a grimy steel town with no escape and the mills his only future.  His only beacon is Abigail Walker, the pretty socialite he secretly meets to steal kisses and more.  Theirs is a clandestine courtship however, as both their families disapprove.  Then a new threat arrives in his old friend and new rival for Abigail’s attention.

But a threat far worse than their secrets and rivalry lurks in the bustling valley – an aging dam 14 miles upriver.  Behind it lurks the swollen waters of beautiful Lake Conemaugh.   The elite South Fork Fishing & Hunting club, with members like Andrew Carnegie,  owns it all, but have ignored the weakening dam. When torrential rains pour down on Memorial Day, it is only a matter of time before the dam surrenders and they are all Swept Away.

A fateful tale of Young Lovers,  Tragic Neglect, and a Valley Doomed to Extinction
