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 see.
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 awaiting him.
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.
At first I wasn’t sure about this book. I liked the cover, and the story sounded good enough, but it seemed to take me a while just to get past the first chapter. When I did get started though, it didn’t want to let me go!
At times the writing did seem to leave a little to be desired, but the story made up for that. I liked how it stressed that we are unique, one of a kind creations and that we are made for something bigger than ourselves. We are, indeed, made for “The River.”
Oh, and as a side note, I now want to go fishing and white water rafting…
