Amazing...this book will stay with you long after you read it. A young girl drowns in the Tamassee River and her body is trapped in an eddy. Because this river is considered a Wild and Scenic river, certain laws prevent anyone from retrieving her body. The fight between environmentalists and her parents is heartbreaking. Highly recommended.
This was a great read about a woman returning to her hometown to photograph a story involving the drowning of a young girl, and the demons of the past that she encounters. It covered many topics including environmentalism, loss and regret. The only complaint I have is that it ended sort of suddenly for me, but otherwise an engaging story that kept me turning pages.
Another beautifully written Southern novel that you'll want to savor. I really loved One Foot in Eden by this author and I thought this one was just as moving.
Wonderfully written and thought provoking book. Made me wonder what side I would be on and how I could live with the decision I made. Highly recommend this second novel from a very talented author.
This book was very enjoyable! The descriptions of the mountain towns and river regions will make you feel as though you are riding through these areas. The small-town, tight-knit community is accurately portrayed. If you've ever been to the Tomassee River or want to go, read this book. You'll be there in these pages.
The characters could have been a bit more developed for my tastes; however, the overall storyline kept moving along at a good pace. Once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down.
