📒Three Rivers Rising ✍ Jame Richards
✏Three Rivers Rising Book Summary : Sixteen-Year-Old Celstia spends every summer with her family at the elite resort at Lake Conemaugh, a shimmering Allegheny Mountain reservoir held in place by an earthen dam. Tired of the society crowd, Celestia prefers to swim and fish with Peter, the hotel’s hired boy. It’s a friendship she must keep secret, and when companionship turns to romance, it’s a love that could get Celestia disowned. These affairs of the heart become all the more wrenching on a single, tragic day in May, 1889. After days of heavy rain, the dam fails, unleashing 20 million tons of water onto Johnstown, Pennsylvania, in the valley below. The town where Peter lives with his father. The town where Celestia has just arrived to join him. This searing novel in poems explores a cross-class romance—and a tragic event in U. S. history. From the Hardcover edition.

📒A Victorian Naturalist S Odyssey ✍ Dr. Gilbert Clark
✏A Victorian Naturalist s Odyssey Book Summary : This tale is of a scholarly man, whom I was privileged to know. He passed through the last decade of his life as I passed through my teens. He had seen the British Empire reach its zenith, a period when no value was placed on wild-life conservation. Big game hunting having been approved of in the highest echelons of society. Birds had suffered badly and amongst them in the UK was the Red Kite. By 1870 it had virtually been wiped out except for a few pairs in the fastnesses of rural Wales. Having entered Wales in 1891to joint the Botany Department of the University, Dr Salter heard of their parlous plight and in 1893 ‘bent his shoulder to the wheel.’ All this gave scope for expanding a simple biography into the “Life and Times” of Dr Salter: hence the title ‘Odyssey.’ It also allowed me to show how an interest in natural history can lead to the most unexpected places and into the company of people from all walks of life in both war and peace.
📒Three Rivers ✍ Tiffany Quay Tyson
✏Three Rivers Book Summary : Melody Mahaffey, trapped into touring for years with a third-rate Christian pop band she can hardly stand, is almost relieved to receive her mother's distress call. But when she returns home to care for her dying father and brain-damaged brother at the sprawling, defunct Three Rivers Farm, Melody is shocked to discover that her mother has abandoned the family. Sure that her daughter will do the right thing, Geneva has left to seek spiritual guidance and break things off with her long-time lover. Rain begins to fall and an epic flood threatens the Mississippi Delta. While Melody tries to get a handle on the chaos at home, a man and his little boy are squatting on her land, escaping their own nightmare. Obi is on the run from a horrific mistake, and he's intent on keeping his son with him at any cost. When the storm arrives, though, they have no choice but to take shelter in Melody's house. And the waters just keep rising. A lifetime of lies, misunderstandings and dark secrets bubble to the surface as the flood destroys the land and threatens their lives. Set against the fertile but dangerous landscape of the rural south near the fictional town of White Forest, Mississippi, Three Rivers beautifully weaves together three parallel stories, told over three days, as each character is propelled headlong into the storm.

📒To The Right Of The Rising Light ✍ Corvus
✏To the Right of the Rising Light Book Summary : "Corvus, please tell us a story." Sitting on a suburban light pole, an old crow by that name would often hear those words spoken to him from other fur or feathered nonhumans of his region. They would come to sit or perch as near as possible to the elder bird, and wait for him to think and then tell a story about other nonhumans of the past or the present.
📒The Rising ✍ Brian McGilloway
✏The Rising Book Summary : When Garda Inspector Benedict Devlin is summoned to a burning barn, he finds inside the charred remains of a man who is quickly identified as a local drug dealer, Martin Kielty. It soon becomes clear that Kielty’s death was no accident, and suspicion falls on a local vigilante group. Former paramilitaries, the men call themselves The Rising. Meanwhile, a former colleague’s teenage son has gone missing during a seaside camping trip. Devlin is relieved when the boy’s mother, Caroline Williams, receives a text message from her son’s phone, and so when a body is reported, washed up on a nearby beach, the inspector is baffled. When another drug dealer is killed, Devlin realises that the spate of deaths is more complex than mere vigilantism. But just as it seems he is close to understanding the case, a personal crisis will strike at the heart of Ben’s own family, and he will be forced to confront the compromises his career has forced upon him. With his fourth novel, McGilloway announces himself as one of the most exciting crime novelists around: gripping, heartbreaking and always surprising, The Rising is a tour de force – McGilloway’s most personal novel so far.
