RIVER OF TOMORROW begins about 12 years after DREAM RIVER (1830). Liberty and Farr Quill are away at the Illinois legislature where Farr is representing his county/region.

If you recall from LONESOME RIVER, Farr found Mercy and Daniel after their families were killed in separate tragedies. Being this couple, they promptly added the 2 children to their family. Daniel, 2 years older than Mercy, has always taken care of her. They have grown up as brother and sister in the Quill household.

In the past few years, as they have reached adulthood, they have not been in each others company as much as before. Mercy became the teacher in Quills Station, while Daniel started farming and managing a mill.

Change came suddenly two strangers came to town insisting that Mercy was their sister Hester Baxter. The brothers introduced themselves to Mercy in a shocking manner and insisted she come with them to Kentucky to see her mother before she died. These brothers were such unprincipled hayseeds (in the eyes of the folks in Quills Station) that Mercy refused.

Hammond Perry has a new career as a slave trader but he is still hostile towards the Quill family and anyone who is close to them. It is immediately obvious that Perry is going to clash with the Quills he holds them responsible for his previous military and business failures.

This book is as good as the opening tome. It is a novel that twists and turns, keeping the reader wondering what will happen next. It is a delight to see folks who have been in previous novels return in this book. It was quick reading because I couldnt put it down! 4.5 stars
