The Ballad of Brightwater

Music and Lyrics by Matthew McCollum

Book by Matthew McCollum and Crystal Skillman

Brightwater was a town in West Virginia, named after the untamed river that cut off its people from the rest of Appalachia. A town ruled by two households, both alike in dignity: had none. So when Rosie MacAleese fell in love with the son of her father’s nemesis…what on earth did she think would happen?
