"The River Within is a fine piece of contemporary literature . . . a well-done, original story that is complex and rich with strong, complicated characters." —Salem West, The Rainbow Reader

"This is a compelling book, beautifully written, with scenes, which take us from the fireside at home to the beat of a war journalist in the Middle East. EThe narrative voice is confident without resorting to tricks to tell us the story at the heart of the book, and probably at the heart of all of us as well. How do we manage when we realize our choices have led us to a painful place?"—Kate Genet, author Orange Moon

Three women. Three lies. One chance to tell the truth.

For thirty years Foreign Correspondent Greer Madison has competed brilliantly in a man’s world. But the hardships of a life spent reporting from war zones have caught up to her and she returns to the States to recuperate at the home of her best friend, Darlene Richardson. Darlene has secrets of her own and for the first time in their thirty-year friendship keeps Greer at a distance. Kate, Darlene’s spontaneous, willful daughter is desperate to bring her struggling family together after the death of her brother, Chris.

The bonds the three women share are strained, reforged, and ultimately strengthened as they struggle to choose between the lives they think they should have and the lives they want. But first they must choose whether to stay on the safety of the known shore or to dive into the uncharted but healing waters of The River Within.
