Cascading Waterworks

By Cindy M. Amos


Busy with her downtown beautification work, Elina Marshall witnesses near calamity as Lathe Dailey, Flora’s new town manager, rescues a widow and her children from a downburst when the old railroad water tower fails. The Marshall family soon attends the world-famous 1904 St. Louis Exposition, and Lathe is invited along to contract the new waterworks that will modernize their town with running water. Romance leads the way through exotic gardens and a gondola ride, until drama unfolds down The Pike’s rowdy midway. The untimely mishap drives a wedge between Lathe and the chairman of the town council—Elina’s stern father. July 4th ushers in a lot auction to expand the town and pits Elina dead set against Lathe’s top bid.
Orderly-minded, Lathe always has a plan, but can Elina align with it?
More than chaos will be “coming down The Pike”
as Missouri determines to go modern with a progressive mindset
that always allows room for romance.
