Review quote

"Charlotte Miller concludes her trilogy with a bold and complex story that spans three generations. Personal histories intertwine to form a basketweave of rich, lively detail." --Judy Goldman, author of The Slow Way Back "Charlotte Miller is the essence of modern Southern Literature. She has woven her heritage into a stunning trilogy, the latest book of which, There is a River, is a passionate story of loss and recovery. It exemplifies a Southerner's deep commitment to place and language." --author of Splendora and My Grandfather's Finger "This third book in the Janson Sanders trilogy is Charlotte Miller's best, and that's saying a lot, because the first two were fine pieces of storytelling. There Is A River brings the story home in a compelling, page-turning way with characters who have by now become good friends. You ache, agonize, cry, laugh, and cheer for these folks. And finally, you see how love and sheer determination make us glad we're human." --Robert Inman, author of Captain Saturday, Home Fires Burning, Old Dogs and Children, Dairy Queen Days "Charlotte Miller's vibrant characters and colorful scenery draw you in and hold on tight, captivating and making you yearn for more long after turning the final page. A terrific book and wonderful trilogy." --Vicki Allen, author of For Molly, The Search for Shannon, and The Return "In There is a River, the conclusion to the trilogy that includes Behold, This Dreamer and Through a Glass, Darkly, Charlotte Miller renders a portion of our Southern experience with delicacy, accuracy, and above all love, rescuing its inhabitants from a dusty obscurity. Miller creates real people with real lives; more importantly, she makes us believe in them every inch of the way. She is a born writer and I for one look forward to every book she will pen during what I am sure will be a very prolific lifetime." -Rosemary Daniell, author of Confessions of a (Female) Chauvinist; Fatal Flowers: On Sin, Sex and Suicide in the Deep South; and The Woman Who Spilled Words All Over Herself: Writing and Living the Zona Rosa Way "Miller succeeds at creating memorable, larger than life characters facing extraordinary odds, and--as in many Victorian novels--manages to give deserving characters their comeupance as the trilogy ends ... Miller should continue to win fans with her latest effort, which is steeped in enough historical detail to provide an appealing glimpse of the ever-changing South." --BookPageshow more
