About this title

Synopsis:

William Phillips, a young blacksmith, sets out to find a place he can call home with his beloved young wife, Adelaide. What he finds is the idyllic village of Moulinette, situated on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River and now known to history as a Lost Village.

Their daughter Mary, raised in a generation known for its stoic resolve, is witness to some of the greatest events in modern history: the advent of the automobile, the tuberculosis pandemic, war, the Great Depression, and the St. Lawrence Seaway. For Mary, all came with a price.

Near the end of her journey, Mary, no longer bound by the expected decorum of playing the role of daughter, wife, or mother to a growing family, is able to allow her vibrant, long-repressed spirit to re-emerge. Yet, just as the waters washed away Mary s beloved village, so now Alzheimer s is washing away her memories.

Before it is too late, Mary s granddaughter, Eliza, realizes that if anyone is to ever truly know who Mary is, her story needs to be told. What she finds lurking under the surface of her reserved grandmother are the hopes, dreams, losses, and disappointments of a lifetime.
