the legend of the time before

Lavender Roaring Fork Clinchfield was a true scion of the South: notable for his fashion plate and an ancestor’s pillared plantation mansion perched like a society wedding cake over the shabby genteel countryside surrounding the quaint town of Iron Hollows. Once a thriving river port, when the earthquake of ’55 caused the frogs to fly and fish to talk, that oddball behavior sent the waters to seek calmer beds than those of perky Miss Forsythia and Miss Hydrangea. They lived as a couple, not that the townsfolk would ever reveal such a fact to outsiders, but outsiders never came anymore.
