The Song of Sway Lake

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Ari Gold[/vc_column_text][edgtf_title_with_dots display_separator=”yes” separator_color=”#000000″][vc_column_text]The Song of Sway Lake is a lush romantic drama about the vanished grace of America, and the spell cast by the melodies of the dead. It’s summer on Sway Lake, the most glamorous lake in the Adirondacks – former playground of the jazz-age New York aristocracy. Music collector Ollie Sway recruits his only friend, a rowdy Russian drifter, to help him steal a 78 record from his own family’s estate. Ollie believes that this mysterious piece of music – recorded at his grandparents’ wedding by Cole Porter’s lover – was hidden for him by his father before his suicide. He believes possessing the record will change his life. The boys’ mission should be as easy as meeting a pretty girl on the water, but the arrival of the beguiling matriarch herself, Charlie Sway, changes everything. For Charlie has her own plans. And this song that hasn’t been heard in half a century may possess the answer to the deepest riddles about love and death – for whichever of these three lost souls will be the first to find it.
