Fiction by Anna Quindlen.
Everything I've read by this author has been excellent. This story is about a girl growing up in a place destined to be a "drowned town," a low-lying area that will be flooded when a dam has to be moved. Of course, her family doesn't want that to happen, and neither do her neighbors.
It's interesting to read about people are striving against the inevitable; it makes me think about how we are all doing that to one degree or another.
