Jenny, of course, jumps at this chance to begin her journey to stardom, not knowing that the river showboat is almost always a step down -- not up -- the acting ladder of success. Jenny leaves Sac Prairie, her family, and David. Soon everything will change.
World War I sweeps in a new dawn for everyone. In Sac Prairie the mostly German population is conflicted; the old street gaslights are being replaced by electric ones; the age of the riverboat is closing; many of the laughing young men going off to war will soon be dead, in combat or by disease.
Everything changes for Jenny, also. Mirroring some of the melodramas the showboat presents, Jenny is chased by a duplicitous cad, whose cad-iness is that even a word? Sweet Genevieve is not a major entry in Derleth's Sac Prairie Saga, an offshoot of his larger Wisconsin Saga, but it is a deceptively enjoyable novel to read.
Derleth brings tired tropes to life as he delves into his characters and their place in time. His love for nature and his enthusiasm for it provides an interesting counterpoint to the artificiality of many of man's hopes and ambitions. For followers of his work, it's also good to see some of his regular characters in minor roles throughout the book. Minor Derleth, yes, but better written than some of the author's other efforts in other genres.
