High Bridge

by Michael Miller

Upstate New York in the mid-19th century is a cauldron bubbling with the lure of fast fortunes, religious zealotry, and battles for civil liberties. This fervor centers on the Erie Canal which successfully supports scores of villages brimming with opportunity. One such village, Fayetteville, shapes the lives of two future American leaders. High Bridge tells the stories of a young newlywed who is only child of freethinking abolitionists and a prankster lad who grows up in the large family of an austere reverend. Despite their different childhoods and world views, they form an unlikely friendship. Can they combine their skills to solve a mystery and vindicate a Black man accused of murder? Michael Miller taps his experience of living near Fayetteville to ground this novel in history. Laced with humor and romance, High Bridge lays bare the evils of racism in a deceptively welcoming village.
