I found the story engaging and interesting. It wasn't a page turner for me, and that is the reason for three stars instead of four. I do recommend the book. The review by The_Paperback_Pursuer is a good guide to whether you will enjoy the book or not, but I would add that the lack of quotation marks did not slow me down or lead to any confusion. The story is told in a voice (from a perspective) that makes quotation marks unnecessary, in my opinion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Mickey Moe Levy goes in search of his fathers past. Chapters alternate between Mickeys story and his father Bernard's story. Page turner! I enjoyed it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Mary Glickman's newest novel One More River tackled a story-line that I had not heard before – Jewish men trying to make their own way in the deep south of Mississippi. The story jumped back and forth between the life of Mickey Moe in the1960's to that of Bernard – his father around the 1920's/1930's. Both men embarked on journeys of discovery that affected them, and their children, for the rest of their lives; each story brimming with beautiful dialect and descriptions. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Mickey Moe and Laura Anne, their parental defiance setting the tone for the entire book. I also liked reading about Aurora May, one of my favorite characters, (no spoilers). Both story-lines come together to solve one mystery, and the level of detail left me reading all night. Unfortunately, my biggest pet peeve was no quotation marks! I do not enjoy having to figure out who is conversing, particularly when a book goes between different sets of characters and/or times. I think that the whole story would flow better with a more practical quotation method (“”). Overall, I found One More River to be a realistic family saga filled with nostalgia for down-home southern comfort. Recommended for historical fiction lovers, or those wanting to experience the South of the1920's through 1960's.
Rating: Bounty's Out (3.5/5)

Having read Ms. Glickman's first novel "Home in the Morning" and thoroughly loving it, I had been eagerly waiting for this book to come out. This book is a compelling read and I found it difficult to put down. I loved how the author wove the storyline through historical events that touched on my growing up experience. This was a very visual novel. Ms. Glickman's nuanced descriptions brought out the aura of the time. I felt that the story line contained compelling twists and turn to keep my interest and made me want to read more.
Ms. Glickman portrays sense of place in an elegant manner and has created another host of interesting off-beat characters.
Now I will be waiting for her third novel!!
