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 join the Koochiching County Historical Society on Thursday, April 15 at 6:30 p.m. for a limited in-person event at Loony's Pub to discuss Virginia Roberts, from whom she drew inspiration for her new book, Waterfall, as part of their History on Tap series. Masks are required, and the event is limited to 40 people. Please register here to attend.

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

"Waterfall is a moving story about healing against all odds. The novel recognizes the seemingly small yet profound movements beneath the surface of everyday life and shows how significant events happen even when you hardly notice them . . . all written in a beautifully crisp style." —Ola Larsmo, author of Swede Hollow
