Description

#1 NYT Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy delivers an emotional and compelling romance about love and family...

Famous photojournalist Ryan Hunter has come back to a family torn apart by mistrust and resentment -- to the father who disowned him, to the brother who betrayed him, to the little boy who shares his features. Ryan, the charismatic "bad boy" son, has returned -- stirring up past conflicts like a whirlwind...and throwing Kara Delaney's fragile, passionate heart into turmoil.

Kara has struggled back from a disastrous marriage to build a new life for herself and her little girl -- a peaceful existence now jeopardized by vicious, small town politics, by her daughter's fanciful ghost stories...and by Ryan's return. Now nature's impending fury threatens to expose long-buried secrets. And Kara must join with the enigmatic, misunderstood Ryan -- to discover the truth that will save their families.... and to explore a dangerous, irresistible love as mighty and enduring as the onrushing river.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 02, 1996 – Hoping to draw tourists to Serenity Springs' Centennial Celebration and boost the town's economy, chamber of commerce president Kara Delaney invites a famous former resident, photo-journalist Ryan Hunter, to be the guest of honor. But Ryan was something of a black sheep, and Kara's grand plan sours when Ryan's father threatens to boycott the festivities and torrential rains pelt the town. As Kara's Aunt Josephine says: "When the river rises, the secrets of years past are washed ashore and brought to life." The town's secrets are the fiber that holds this tale together: What happened to Ryan's mother when she deserted her two young sons? Is Ryan the real father of his brother's child? Whose ghost is trying to communicate with Kara's 11-year-old daughter? Freethy (Daniel's Gift) delivers strong, compelling narrative but her characters are more suited to soaps.
