Summary
Nel Abbott spent her life immersed in the mystery behind the local river, also known as the drowning pool. The body of water where many women in local legend were either forcefully drowned, or had taken their own lives. As an adult, she collected all of the information and stories she could. Despite the town’s resistance to publishing the information, she was compiling a manuscript of the tales, when she becomes the most recent victim of the drowning pool. The suspicious death initially appears to be a suicide, but as the cast of characters unfolds, some inconspicuous bystanders may have played a bigger role in the incident than initially thought.
Critique
This story is a bit eerie as it explores the devastating ways the past can reach into the present.
