The building of the Quabbin Resevoir in western Massanchusetts in the 1930s signals the end of three small rural towns-and the beginning of a different life for 14-year-old Celie Wheeler.
Celie Wheeler's family has lived in Enfield, Massachusetts, for generations, and she would love to live there forever. For all of her fourteen years, though, the threat that Enfield and two other neighboring towns might be claimed by eminent domain to build the Quabbin Reservoir has been very real. For Celie the coming of the reservoir has always been "someday", far off in the future. But that "someday" has now arrived, and the secure happy world she's known will soon vanish. What does the future hold for her and her family?
