Will the dam hold?

Julie Wallace has always wanted to write. Trying to  
escape the Great Depression, Julie ’ s father buys the
Alderton Sentinel, a small-town newspaper in flood-prone Alderton, Pennsylvania, and moves his family
there. As flash floods ominously increase, Julie ’ s investigative reporting uncovers secrets that could
endanger the entire community.

Julie, the newspaper, and her family are thro wn into a perilous standoff with the owners of the steel mills
as they investigate the conditions of th e immigrant laborers. As the Alderton Sentinel and Julie take on a more aggressive role to reform these conditions, seething tensions come to a head.

When a devastating tragedy follows a shocking revel ation, Julie ’ s courage and strength are tested. 
Will truth and justice win, or will Julie lose everything she holds dear?

Dean's eyes were studying me. "You have a way with words. What kind o
f writing do you want to do?"
"Articles for Dad's paper, to start."
"What do you want to write about?"
I paused, suddenly uncertain about how much to share. Dean's eyes wer
e reassuring.
"When I know more, I'd like to write about deeper things."
