I just recently joined a book discussion group at my local library.It is great to have someone to share and discuss these books with.
The first book I was given to read was "Time Is A River" by Mary Alice Monroe.Monroe is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.This book was instantly one of my favorites to read.
Mia Landan survives breast cancer only to find that her husband has been unfaithful to her.Traveling from her home in South Carolina to a friends cabin in North Carolina,Mia has to find herself,her inner strength,and her journey out of the past.Unraveling the mystery of the owner of her cabin in the woods,Mia makes many new friends along the way,and uncovers the truth about a murder in the small town of Watkins Mill.
Mia finds herself to feel close to Kate Watkins (previous owner of the cabin in Watkins Cove).Especially in their love for fly-fishing. Kate's and Mia's lives seem to intertwine and Mia feels a deep love for the woman whom she knows only through Kate's diaries.
The book includes the poem "Holding Each Other Up" by Mark Nepo.A beautifully written poem that appeals to survivors of any kind.
"Time Is A River is a story of adventure,mystery,betrayal,and love.An excellent book from beginning to end.
