A Saga

Flood: A Saga
A catastrophic flood destroys a farm that has been in a family for three generations. The story traces the development of this farm from its humble beginnings as a homestead on the Iowa prairie through the aftermath of the flood.

Nathaniel Conklin is a canny entrepreneur who built his simple homestead into a one thousand acre farm. He amasses a fortune by developing other successful businesses while handling his farm. During his lifetime, he plays a key role in the development of a town that eventually becomes a city. He also helps several Amish families who have been forced from their Ohio farms to relocate to his land and fights the prejudice the plain folk face.

Within the pages of Flood, you will meet Nathaniel and his wife Margaret, their son, Cole, his wife, Nicole, his granddaughter, Vivian and her husband, Jim who are forced to watch helplessly as what remains of the once proud Conklin farm is washed away. Along the way, you will meet Hannah and Claudia, two Amish members of Nathaniel’s household, and Thomas, a Catholic boy who falls in love with Hannah causing a clash of cultures.

Flood not only portrays the lives of those involved with the three generations of Conklin’s, but also the impact the flood has on the land and the wildlife that live on it.
