Giveaway: The Day the Falls Stood Still by Cathy Marie Buchanan

PTTP's new giveaway is brought to you by the generosity of author Cathy Marie Buchanan! The Day the Falls Stood Still is her first novel and is getting rave reviews on Amazon!

We have 1 copy up for grabs. Please leave a comment below with your email address to enter. US and International entries are accepted.




SYNOPSIS: Steeped in the intriguing history of Niagara Falls, this epic love story is as rich, spellbinding, and majestic as the falls themselves.

1915. The dawn of the hydroelectric power era in Niagara Falls. Seventeen-year-old Bess Heath has led a sheltered existence as the youngest daughter of the director of the Niagara Power Company. After graduation day at her boarding school, she is impatient to return to her picturesque family home near Niagara Falls. But when she arrives, nothing is as she had left it. Her father has lost his job at the power company, her mother is reduced to taking in sewing from the society ladies she once entertained, and Isabel, her vivacious older sister, is a shadow of her former self. She has shut herself in her bedroom, barely eating--and harboring a secret.

The night of her return, Bess meets Tom Cole by chance on a trolley platform. She finds herself inexplicably drawn to him--against her family's strong objections. He is not from their world. Rough-hewn and fearless, he lives off what the river provides and has an uncanny ability to predict the whims of the falls. His daring river rescues render him a local hero and cast him as a threat to the power companies that seek to harness the power of the falls for themselves. As their lives become more fully entwined, Bess is forced to make a painful choice between what she wants and what is best for her family and her future.

Set against the tumultuous backdrop of Niagara Falls, at a time when daredevils shot the river rapids in barrels and great industrial fortunes were made and lost as quickly as lives disappeared, The Day the Falls Stood Still is an intoxicating debut novel.

Giveaway ends on January 4th.  Good luck to all!

  37. I seem to remember seeing a review of another book written about Niagara a few months ago although I think that was something to do with the dare-devils that actually tried to go over the falls in barrels.

    I would be interested to see what use the author makes of the Falls.

    Thank you.
