Trinity Baird’s hope for independence is tenuous, especially when her family has the final say—and the power to lock her awayMary Casanova will be at Winding Trail Bookstore on Saturday, November 6 at 1:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, Waterfall.

In her third Rainy Lake historical drama, Mary Casanova takes us back to pristine and rugged northern Minnesota. Informed by historical figures, by the burgeoning growth of women’s rights in the early twentieth century, and the complicated issue of mental illness and how “difficult” women were silenced, Waterfall offers a compelling story of a young woman’s fight to find her way.

"Waterfall is a thoughtful and beautifully written story about a young woman struggling to find her independence. Set in the 1920s, the book gives us glimpses of the issues of the day, which remain important now—women’s rights, anti-Semitism, treatment of mental illness, lynchings. A deeply satisfying read, it shows that one can go over the waterfall and still survive." —Mary Logue, author of The Streel and the Claire Watkins mystery series

"With its glorious setting contrasting with the realities of the era, Waterfall details darker aspects of the Roaring Twenties, but also celebrates the reemergence of an individual spirit." —Foreword Reviews

"A refreshing and satisfying read." —Star Tribune
