Overview

How often have you rushed home because you've forgotten something? We all know that feeling. But what if that something is a person and what if it is the very past itself that we try to go back for? How can we possibly recapture it?
Afloat on her home on the water, midstream between her youth and her maturity we find the artistic Alison, a girl of the hippy days, child of her time and ever faithful to her true self, her painting, her obsession and her past. Close by, but agonisingly out of her reach is Nicky, musician and artisan, the man for whom she waits throughout the years.
But Alison is not alone on her island. All around her in the relentless torrent of life's flow are her peers, her friends, once students, now some with children of their own and those who live on the island. Amongst them, we'll meet Steve and Roj, one time college friends of Alison and Nicky and we'll see how their paths diverge. Then there are the others, those they in turn encounter in that wondrous and often befuddling world outside, those from beyond the river lands that form the backdrop to their lives.
Meet the river people. More than that, let's dive in and see what lies deeper within them and witness the many twists of fortune that shape their destinies.
Meet the river itself. Drink in its character. Sense its moods. Like time itself, we'll find it unstoppable and irresistible in its power.
'River People' will ferry you back and forth across time's divide, fascinatingly from the then to the now, again and again, eventually leading you safely back to where you started. But on the way, somewhere along the reaches of this captivating stream, you might just find that you have left part of yourself behind.
