Just finished this sensational novel. I am still reeling from the experience and will add more when I'm able . This truly is a "Must Read"

I'm not a reviewer, but I was knocked sideways--emotionally-- by this book. I read it over a few days and grew more and more sad, despairing, and restless. The storyline for each of the three women wound tighter as their connection to one one another became more complex. the back story in some flashback added color and depth to the portrait that the author created.
The detailed picture of "War" through letters and stories became, in itself, another character even more terrifying.

The author's ability to evoke that intensity ofemotion is laudable and masterful.
Greer,Dar, and Kate continue to compete for my attention.These characters are more than three dimensional, I could feel their breath and feel the heat.
Baxter Clare has created an amazing novel.The River Within
