Overview

Though The Mountains May Fall chronicles Mary and James love against the backdrop of Johnstown, Pennsylvania in the 1880 s. Johnstown was a bustling community of hardworking people dedicated to the community and to each other. Enter the rich people from Pittsburgh and other parts of Pennsylvania seeking a refuge from the stresses of the business life. They establish a resort above Johnstown in the peaceful mountains near the small village of South Fork.

Mary and James struggle to overcome these conflicts and be true to their love. As their love rises to new heights, so too does the peaceful lake they visit. Too soon, both come together in a climax as the dam breaks and the floodwaters rush towards Johnstown.

The reader is driven along with the flood towards its final reckoning. Now all that awaits is destiny, for Mary, for James and for the people of Johnstown, Pennsylvania on that fateful day of May 31, 1889.

    Author's Thoughts

    I wrote "Though The Mountains May Fall" to show how even in the darkest moments there is reason to hope. The Johnstown Flood of 1889 was a tragic event and over 2000 people lost their lives. Many search for the reasons and the factors that led to the flood. Indeed I started out the book in just such a manner. Then I realized that the cause is not really that important, the people are; those that perished, those that survived and those whose courage remains with us even today. Though The Mountains May Fall combines Fact with Fiction, Legends with History. I desire that this novel leave the reader with a real sense of the horrific event but also with the true spirit of hope in the future and trust in God.
