In the lonely years following the death of her fianc, Helen is unable to move on with her life. But life itself is moving on around her literally: the building of a dam is forcing her small town and her family home to relocate. But the construction project means more than the loss of a home. Helens brother, Robbie, who disappeared without a trace fifteen years earlier, suddenly resurfaces. As he re-enters his sisters life, he reveals the secret of why he left in the first place: a secret that tore their family apart, and affected Helens life in more ways than she ever realized. The second novel by Michael V. Smith, Progress is a stirring story of lives lost and found.
