'Shelley Read's lyrical voice is a force of nature and when she lends it to a woman leading a hardscrabble life in rural Colorado, the result is tragic, uplifting and completely unforgettable' BONNIE GARMUS, author of LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY
'A lush, beautiful, strong book. It took me on such a transformative life journey. I could not put it down' CLOVER STROUD
I've come to understand how the exceptional lurks beneath the ordinary like the deep and mysterious world beneath the sea.
On a cool autumn morning, Victoria Nash heads into her village pulling a rickety wagon filled with late-season peaches.
As she nears an intersection, a stranger in town stops to ask her the way.
She makes the decision to walk with him. 'Go as a river,' he tells her as they part ways.
So begins a mezmerising story of split-second decisions and considered acts that make up one woman's tumultuous life, as Victoria begins to absorb and follow his words.
Gathering all the pieces of her small and extraordinary existence, spinning through the eddies of desire, heartbreak and betrayal, she will arrive at a single rocky decision that will change her life for ever.
Completely spellbinding, vivid, and luminous' JANE GREEN
'Go As a River delivers so very much: the tenderness and curiosity of young love, the eternal pangs of loss, the brutality of racism, the sustaining power of nature and the miracle of a mother's love. Suffused with wisdom and compassion, this shattering testimony to life must be savored, treasured, shared' MEG WAITE CLAYTON, author of The Postmistress of Paris
