My Review of The River by Michael Neale

Overview:
Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure.

But something holds him back—the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on The River when he was just five years old—something no child should ever see.

Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River. He remains trapped, afraid to take hold of the life awaiting him.

When he returns to The River after years away, his heart knows he is finally home. His destiny is within reach. Claiming that destiny will be the hardest—and bravest—thing he has ever done.

My Review:
I thought this book was like many books about, loss, love, hope, and discovery. However, when I read about Gabriel's own struggles and discoveries in his life I felt my heart go out to him. I felt bad for the losses he lived through, how horrible it would be to witness the death of your own father. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement, including a reading group guide for those that may be in book clubs.
