I received a copy of The River by Michael Neale from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
"You were made for The River . . .”
Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white
water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The
rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure.
But something holds him back—the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on
The River when he was just five years old—something no child should ever
Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering
the treasures of The River. He remains trapped, afraid to take hold of the life
When he returns to The River after years away, his heart knows he is finally
home. His destiny is within reach. Claiming that destiny will be the hardest—and
bravest—thing he has ever done.
This is a book that will get you to thinking. Gabriel had a terrible thing happen it him when he was young and struggled with it for the rest of his life. He knew his life in Kansas wasn't what he wanted but he didn't know what else there was. His friend Jimmy changed all that when he took him and other friends to The River. Being at The River changed Gabriel forever. The question you're left with is what am I missing?
