"Rose Island, An Almost Accurate Account of Days Gone By" provides you with an exhilarating and nonstop roller coaster ride of a read that includes mysteries of ancient treasures, lost loves, and ghostly apparitions. This is the story of Claire Christiansen, a spoiled debutante from Louisville, and her friend Lutticia Smailes, a young gal from the hollers of Hazard, whose destinies fatefully cross during the summer before everything they hold dear is destroyed by the great Ohio River flood of 1937. Together they forge an eternal bond that will last beyond the grave. The mysteries of the now deserted amusement park, ROSE ISLAND, hurls the reader at warp speed through countless plot twists and turns, in both current time and days gone by. This includes a retelling of local legends surrounding Louisville, Utica, the Falls of the Ohio, and the tribes of the moon-eyed White Indians. This tale, although a work of fiction, is mightily based on places and people in and around Kentuckiana.

About the Author

Terry Chambers lived on her boat, the 'Family Jewel' for eight years across from the deserted Rose Island Amusement Park. Much of her inspiration came from gazing across the river at sunset to the old park from atop the 'Jewel' with a martini or two in hand.
