This month we will be reading Waterproof by Judith Coopey.

"Waterproof" is a novel set against the aftermath of the Johnstown Flood of 1889. It's the story of Pamela Gwynedd, a young woman who lost almost everything to the flood: her fiance, her father, her mother, and her beloved little brother, Geordie. Her mother didn't die in the flood, but she's lost in catatonia. Her father, unable to cope with his grief and guilt, just walked away about a year later. That leaves Pam with no money, no job, an invalid mother to care for, and no hope for change. But change comes in strange and varied ways. Pam finds herself in the middle of things, wrapped up in a mystery and torn between loyalty to her mother and the chance for a new life.
