During the 1930s, an artist and reluctant new wife struggles to reconcile her heart's ambitions with the promises she has made Cascade, Massachusetts, 1935. Desdemona Hart Spaulding, a promising young artist, abandoned her dreams of working in New York City to rescue her father. Two months later he is dead and Dez is stuck in a marriage to reliable but child-hungry Asa Spaulding. Dez also stands to lose her father's legacy, the Cascade Shakespeare Theater, as the Massachusetts Water Authority decides whether to flood Cascade to create a reservoir. Amid this turmoil arrives Jacob Solomon, a fellow artist for whom Dez feels an immediate and strong attraction. As their relationship reaches a pivotal moment, a man is found dead and the town accuses Jacob, a Jewish outsider. But the tide turns when Dez's idea for a series of painted postcards is picked up by "The American Sunday Standard" and she abruptly finds herself back on the path to independence. New York City and a life with Jacob both beckon, but what will she have to give up along the way?

A wonderful book about change..for the better and for the worse. The driving change is the lost of an entire Massachusetts town as it drowns in the creation of a fictionalized Quabin Reservoir. There's a bittersweet twist at the end that I never saw coming. Highly recommend!
