Description: Kimberly Brock’s acclaimed debut novel The River Witch is a mystical southern tale set against the backdrop of the Sea Islands. When ballerina Roslyn Bryne loses her career and suffers a tragic miscarriage, her grief sends her into a desperate exile to Manny’s Island where she rents a lonely house that once belonged to a conjure woman. But instead of solitude, Roslyn is confronted with the audacious, motherless Damascus Trezevant, and an unforgettable summer follows. Fraught with emotional urgency, Brock delivers an enthralling narrative about the difficult and profound choices we make in the name of love.

“There was no doubt even for a child as young as I'd been, that she'd raised his ghost. I knew then, the only thing that really ever haunts a person is regret.”
Kimberly Brock

“Before you knew it, a wonder could mix with the plain old earth beneath your feet until you could no longer tell the difference at all.”
Kimberly Brock

“The way I see it,” she said, “God is not like a person or even a thing, really. People go around making God into whatever they want or need. But when you get down to it, I believe what my Granny Byrne said. God is love and love is about changing, becoming something more.”
Kimberly Brock, The River Witch

Ernest Hemingway

“Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue”
Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith

“It's a funny thing, how much time we spend planning our lives. We so convince ourselves of what we want to do, that sometimes we don't see what we're meant to do.”
Susan Gregg Gilmore, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen

“I didn't really think Jesus cared what I wore to Cedar Grove Baptist Church, or to see the governor for that matter, considering the fact that in every picture I ever saw of the King of Kings, He was wearing sandals and bundled up in nothing more than a big, baggy robe.”
Susan Gregg Gilmore, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen

“Now I know my father was a certified man of God, but at a fairly young age, I decided that when it came to my destiny, he did not know what he was talking about.”
