I really loved this book. I didn't know what to expect. The writing is magical and smooth. The characters were all fully developed and each fascinating in their own rights. The relationship that all the different characters immediately created upon seeing the little girl who was drowned and then came back to life were all special and deep and personal. I loved following all the characters over the course of the book to see who felt their connection was the "right" and the "strongest" one.

the ending really does leave you feeling thoughtful about the whole tale and how relationships can change and be affected.

Most special of all was that throughout the book the river itself played a main character part as well. It was embedded in the lives of everyone who lived along it.

I truly appreciated that the book ended fully wrapped up. Would I have loved more? of course, but the book was satisfying.
