I am reviewing this book for Glass Road Public Relations
Her relationship with her daughter in shambles and tensions mounting with her mother-in-law, Anna Larson returns to her childhood home on the banks of the Suislaw River to sort out her parent's belongings and put the pieces of her own life back together.
Embracing her native heritage for the first time since childhood Anna transforms her old family home into Shining Waters Inn, a place she hopes will give her family a new beginning.
River's Song is Book One in the Inn at Shining Waters series.
This book was a joy to read. It was light and enjoyable. Melody Carson made me feel like I was there along the bank of the Suislaw River. This book does a wonderful job of addressing faith and healing from abuse. It is a beautiful and well written story. The novel also does a great job of reminding us that God will provide for us in His own timing. I thought the ending of the story was rushed. I would have loved to have more details about the conclusion of the story. Still I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
