River's Song

Grab it for your KINDLE

I am so excited about this new series from Melody Carlson!   I made a terrible mistake though.  At the end of this book, there is a bonus chapter from the second  book in this series and I read it.   It’s a cliffhanger and now I am anxiously waiting for the release of River’s Call.

River’s Song is a wonderful combination of many things; Native American culture, romance, difficult family relationships, mother / daughter tensions and yet it all works together beautifully in this story.  Melody took a variety of interesting subjects and combined them into one fantastic read.  

And the gorgeous book cover?  Absolute perfection in my opinion!

This book moves at a really good pace and held my interest from start to finish.   I felt like I literally became part of this story and the characters because it was so easy to connect with them in my mind.  This story was completely different from any other Melody Carlson book I’ve read and I am excited to see where she goes with this series.

I HIGHLY recommend adding River’s Song to your list of summer reads.  


Sometimes when we look back, we are able to see ahead

Following her mother’s funeral, and on the verge of her own midlife crisis, widow Anna Larson returns to the home of her youth to sort out her parents’ belongings, as well as her own turbulent life.

For the first time since childhood, Anna embraces her native heritage, despite the disdain of her vicious mother-in-law.

By transforming her old family home on the banks of the Siuslaw River into The Inn at Shining Waters, Anna hopes to create a place of healing—a place where guests experience peace, grace, and new beginnings. Starting with her own family . . .

“Melody Carlson painted a serene and unforgettable sense of place that came alive with shimmering waters, one woman’s dream, life-changing wisdom, and characters I care about … I’m seriously hooked on the series!" -- Kathy Herman, author of Secrets of Roux River Bayou Series and the Sophie Trace Trilogy

"Melody Carlson's River's Song eased through me gently layer by layer, deeper and deeper. This story of re-awakening or renewal appears deceptively simple but wields great emotional power. I look forward to book 2 in The Inn at Shining Rivers series." Lyn Cote, Author of Her Abundant Joy
"In River’s Song, Melody Carlson beautifully tells a generational story of a family living alongside the banks of Oregon’s Siuslaw River. Told with sensitivity and insight the story includes a Native American thread, deals with issues of abuse, and weaves an ending full of redemption and grace. I can’t wait to read the next novel in the series!" Leslie Gould, Beyond the Blue and co-author of The Amish Midwife and The Amish Nanny, with Mindy Starns Clark
