About River's Song

My Take:  This is a wonderful start to a new series. I haven't read any books that are told from the viewpoint that this one is, that of a Native American woman.  I have recently been discovering the wonder of nature around my home and this book seemed to fit in with this new found joy of both this new series and of nature.  Highly recommended. 
I was provided a copy of this book to review by Glass Road PR.  Opinions are my own.


  1. Hey, Rebecca at Pump Up Your Book Tour is looking for bloggers to review a Christian poetry book titled, "While There is Still Time".
