The River :  A Novel

   
Author: Michael Neale 

“You were made for The River . . .” Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure. But something holds him back — the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on The River when he was just five years old. It was something no child should ever see. Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River. He remains trapped, afraid to take hold of the life awaiting him. When he returns to The River after years away, his heart knows he is finally home. His destiny is within reach. Claiming that destiny will be the hardest — and bravest — thing he has ever done. Review:   

"The story begins with a terrifying episode that 5-year-old Gabriel and his father experience above a spectacular waterfall in Firewater Gorge. When Gabriel is a young man, the traumatic event mysteriously draws him back to the river with a seemingly supernatural force. Michael Neale’s skillful portrayal captures Gabriel as a delightful, excited child and again as a questioning young man in search of himself and the father he loved; Neale also delivers the terror in between. His characterization of Gabriel’s growth to maturity sounds authentic. Music breaks, background music, and sounds of cascading waters add realism. Michael Neale is a talented author who narrates his own work with skill and empathy."
