I’ve never been to Niagara Falls and I have heard it is beautiful and is quite the experience.
I picked up a copy of The Day the Falls Stood Still.
Recently I was browsing a book store with a friend and they had the book displayed. I told them I had a copy and I haven’t read it yet. I then proceeded to get out my copy. These past few days I’ve read it. I was even reading it while at work, something I rarely do.
Cathy Marie Buchanan weaves a tale using true life stories from Niagara Falls in the early 20th century and the days of World War I. Bess Cole is the narrator and her story begins as a teenager and ends in her twenties, her formative years. It is a page turner from the first page. The story is a reminder that even in the face of tragedy and the daily grind, life goes on and resilience is key.
A must read.
