Well this is the second book I have read by this author, and if the books were not free gifts I never would have read the first and definitely not the second. However, the author did improve in this second installation in both character development and story line. Ride the river is about a young girl traveling alone across a few states back in the day (late 1800's early 1900's) and complications which can arise in such situations. It deals heavily with commitments people make, how every association a person has can affect them and loyalty amongst friends and family. It was great to see a heroine instead of a pining lady like in the last book. Yet he almost takes "Echo's" independence and abilities to resolve situations a little too far. Overall I enjoyed the book; it had some good twists and turns with adequate details for all which were going on. Biggest issue with the book, the ending happens in two pages, seriously. There is a long chase, hunt and traveling to get through the book, only to have it wrapped up snuggly in two pages.cliff hanger doesn't cover it, lack of planning is more likely. C
