Beside the Still Waters
 

Authored by Jacqueline T. Lynch

Four towns dismantled slowly while their inhabitants grieve for a history and heritage that has been voted away from them. Based on an actual event which displaced four entire towns in central Massachusetts for the construction of a reservoir, families are divided between those who protest the construction project, those who give up and leave, and those who help to build it. A rift between two brothers, Eli and John Vaughn, at the turn of the twentieth century continues through to the next generation as John tries to use Jenny, Eli's daughter, in a plot to regain the family farm. Jenny becomes the guardian of her family's heritage, and ultimately, the one to decide what happens to them. Torn between loyalty to her family and heritage, and the allure of a future beyond the valley, Jenny refuses to remain powerless like the men she loves, but looks for a way to take control. A disastrous decision may prove fatal in a race against time.
