The River Wife is a story of different wives' lives intertwined over several decades. Taking place in the south, beginning in the mid 1800's, the story includes slavery, abuse, piracy, and love lost. It is beautifully written and makes an excellent choice for a book club. Full of intrigue, suspense, and even some paranormal activity - this book quickly became one of my favorite reads of the year.

I found this book in the Bargain Section and many times those books turn out to be very good. I liked the plot of the book. It follows three generations of a family that settled in Nebraska in the mid 1880's. The first generation male basically shaped the lives of his future generations. There is a mystery in the book that kept me really interested. The man had a huge amount of money that was hidden on his property and the third generation was desperately looking for it. I was disappointed by the outcome of this part of the book. The women in the book had very strong and different personalities which made the book interesting. It was a fairly good read, but rather long at times.

The first half of this book was absolutely mesmerizing! Somehow the second half seemed to me to be written by someone else. She got totally lost in the story.

The plot was a good plot but the writing had far too many gaps in it. I got to the end and went what? I still am confused if the main character was reading the diary she had all the answers so the end made no sense what so ever. There were huge gaps in time and characters who seemed to stop existing.
