Cascade, by Maryanne O'Hara

Hardcover in New Condition



A locked box and a deathbed promise. A town threatened with flooding.
And a raft of difficult personal decisions.

It's 1935. Desdemona Hart Spaulding, a gifted, Paris-trained artist, has married in haste, in the once-thriving summer town of Cascade, to provide a home for her dying father and save the
family's renowned Shakespeare theater. Now Cascade is on the short list to be flooded to provide drinking water for Boston, MA, and Dez's growing discontent is complicated by her attraction to Jacob, a fellow artist. When tragic events unfold, Dez makes bad choices that force her to answer hard questions: Must she keep her promises? Is it morally possible to set herself free?

"What do we have to give up to be whom we yearn to be?  CASCADE unfolds like a Shakespearean tragedy, with an ending you won't see coming."  The Boston Globe

"Gorgeously written and involving, Cascade explores the age-old conflict between a
woman's perceived duty and her deepest desires." People Magazine, People Pick
