Progress by Michael V Smith
The drama in Michael V. Smith's character-based novel Progress takes place over the course of just one week. A woman happens to witness the accidental death of a construction worker on a hydroelectric project. Helen Massey lives in a community that is in the process of being moved to a new location, before the new dam floods the area. Shaken by what she has seen, Helen arrives home to find her brother Robert waiting. He left home abruptly, 15 years earlier, and no one has heard from him since. Helen isn't surprised to learn that Robert is gay, but he holds deeper secrets. Truth must come to the surface before their lives can move forward.
