Go As a River
by Shelley Read
“What I’ve learned most about becoming is that it takes time”
Set in the breath-taking hills of Colorado in the late 1940’s, Go As A River is a beautiful, tender coming-of-age novel about 17 year old Victoria who lost her mother in an accident when she was young and as a result has grown up in a tough household of men with no concept of what it means to love and be loved. Until one cool autumn day in the little town of Iola, a grubby stranger asks her for directions.. “He wasn’t much to look at” she notes, “Not at first, anyway.” And so begins the mesmerizing story of the split-second decisions and courageous acts which propel Victoria away from the only home she has ever known and towards a reckoning with loss, hope and her own untapped strength.
Beautiful . . . A striking first novel of love and strength and growth, set against the forests and rivers of Colorado’s high country. Read is a gifted writer, and the book is a literary triumph.- Denver Post
