In a small Pennsylvania town, one of the most famous women in history — a woman who the world has believed dead for almost two decades — is dying.
John Chambers walked away from his life eighteen years ago to become the woman's bodyguard. He gave up everything — including the woman he loved — because he believed that was his destiny.
But destiny has other ideas.
In the tradition of BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY and A PRAYER FOR THE DYING, NEW AVALON is Robert Swartwood's finest work yet.
