TURNING BACK THE PAGES WITH AIN'T NO RIVER






AIN'T NO RIVER
By:Sharon Ewell Foster
Published by: Multnomah
ISBN# - 1-57673-628-8
358 pages


The first in a 3 book series, Ain’t No River begins in a D.C. law firm with Garvin Daniels, a tightly-wound professional woman with more than one chip on her shoulder. During a forced leave-of-absence, she goes to North Carolina to “rescue” her grandmother from a supposed no-good younger man with ulterior motives.

Instead of working out her agenda, Garvin finds herself facing many issues she would rather avoid - like the basis of her self-worth, her need for a Savior, and her controlling nature. She is blessed to have a loving grandmother and good friends who accept her in spite of her flaws. During her time in North Carolina, Garvin’s loved ones (and a few strangers) help her in letting go of her pain and fears from the past that have kept her self-absorbed and closed minded.

Foster has written a really good story that is relatable to most people. The characters are realistic, the story is interesting and inspiring, and she encourages the reader to think about important issues like hypocrisy, purity and faithfulness, and prejudice of all kinds. The book is loaded with scripture and wisdom.

I appreciate an author who has something of substance to say. A side-effect of reading this book is the descriptions of meals will have you craving some good Southern comfort food and you’ll be digging in your purse for change the next time you hear the jingle of a snow-cone truck!
