Summary

1901. When a train robbery destroy's Annie's plans for a quiet life, she reinvents herself as a redheaded daredevil and heads to Niagara Falls, determined to be the first person to survive going over it in a barrel - or to die trying. But when Annie arrives in Niagara, she unwittingly walks into a turf war between two crime bosses vying to control the illegal gambling, extortion and prostitution that hum below Niagara's honeymoon veneer. As Annie comes to realize that water is not the only danger in Niagara, her relationship with a riverman threatens her plans to fall. 

Based on the true story of daredevil Annie Edson Taylor, Katerie Morin's debut novel follows in the tradition of historical novels with competing points of view that includes The Blue Flower and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
