Review:
As a child of six, the narrator and her friends fished the Swift River, played mumblety-peg in the graveyard, and slept under the backyard maples. But then, when Boston "needed water," the towns were flooded, and Quabbin Reservoir - where a grown-up narrator sits peacefully in a boat with her father - inundated that bucolic past. The author says she has "let go" of the past. But the text, and Cooney's lovely watercolors, say otherwise.
