THE RIVER HAS SECRETS SHE WILL NEVER TELL... Somewhere deep in the forest, where not many have ventured to go, lies a secret. It's the summer of 1877 when Anna Brownfield, 12, and her twin brothers, Jed and Josiah, 15, set out to find the secret place in the river, hidden in the forest near their little dirt road southern town, where folks say that if you touch the water there, you will look around and realize you have traveled forward or even backward in time. Little do they know what the "Enchanted Lady" winding her way through the forest, which Anna refers to as "Lady River," has in store for them. Anna is now 87 years old, and she has some stories to tell, but none quite like the "Summer of the Rose..". BUT ANNA KNOWS A FEW OF THEM... So pull up a chair and sit for a while with Anna, Sam "Tater" Jenson, Mattie Turner, and the others, along with "Flapjack," the town hound dog as they take you back to a time of early southern America, when the town storytellers sat out in rocking chairs in front of the old stores and told stories of days gone by. Go back to a time when you saw the world through the eyes of a child and dared to imagine the impossible. You might hear a story you just wouldn't believe... AND SO DOES JONATHAN... Did she find her true love because of a secret place in the river, like others claim they did? There are others who have stories to tell, and Anna knows who they are...show more
