The River Witch

How could you resist a title like this? I am all ready now to read Ron Rash’s “The Cove” and dive deep into Southern Gothic. This story had me from page one, from the dedication page and the quote from Thoreau:

Though I do not believe
that a plant will spring up
where no seed has been,
I have great faith in a seed.
Convince me that you have a see there,
and I am prepared to expect wonders.

To the ghosty stories that follow, this began as a page-turner. The story switches back and forth between the voices of Roslyn, an injured ballerina who has come to the Georgia Sea Islands to recuperate and restart her life, and a third person version through the eyes of the young girl Demascus, an injured bird of a child wandering motherless on the island. The story weaves magic and love and longing together with faith and fear, roots and wings, and I love how it all comes together. A great summer read.

  • Unquestionably imagine that which you stated.

    Your favourite justification appeared to be on the internet
    the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while other folks think about worries that they just do not recognise about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest
    and defined out the entire thing without having side effect ,
    other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
    Thank you
