City of Three Rivers is an epic historical novel set in Dayton, Ohio, between the years of 1876 and 1924. It follows the life of one extraordinary woman during a time when floods repeatedly threaten to destroy the city she loves. It is also a time when women were confined to the roles of wives and mothers, but Susan chooses her own journey, pursuing her passion to become a healer.
When her father confesses to a less than perfect past and asks her to help him if he ever gets “another chance,” Susan begins to explore unconventional beliefs about life and death, and to uncover family secrets. But the mystery continues to unfold. Why do her nephew’s maps remind her of the maps her father used to draw? And why does a beautiful young artist seem strangely familiar? Susan’s quest takes her across the country to her father’s childhood home and leads her to a deeper understanding of herself and an unexpected way to help two people who have been searching for each other for a long time.
