Overview

As the last of the mourners departed the ornate Catholic Church, Emily entered a side door unnoticed, walked to the coffin, and punched her dead father in the face. "You'll never be dead enough," she whispered. "Never."

Determined to recover from the hands of a father who sexually abused her and an emotionally distant mother, twenty-seven-year-old Emily Evans seeks the peace she'd lost in her youth. Yet, shattered by the betrayal of those she was taught to respect and love, she fears that she may never overcome the devastating effects of generations of abuse. Will she ever let herself truly open up to the power of unconditional love?

Set in the rich backwoods of New Brunswick, Canada, Run, River Currents is inspired by a true story of abuse, pain, and the struggle to find healing and forgiveness.

Editorial Reviews

Author - Sara Pritchard
Two strong, opposing forces run through Run, River Currents—one of rage, violence and shame, the other of grace and redemption… Set along the beautiful yet life-claiming Tobique River, Ginger Marcinkowski’s novel is graced with narrative profluence and lyrical descriptions. It will leave you drenched, breathless, on your knees and gasping for air.
—Sara Pritchard, author of Crackpots (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year) and Help Wanted: Female (2012-13)
Filmmaker and award-winning celebrity - Jim Jordan
An amazing book…Run, River Currents is one young woman’s heart-wrenching story of pain and abuse, rage and resentment…and her life-changing struggle to learn the power of unconditional love. A must-read.
—Jim Jordan, filmmaker and award-winning celebrity & fashion photographer (Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue)
Author - Gale Martin
There are important stories that must be told about children who are scarred, whose physical injuries and emotional damage are inflicted at the hands of those society has entrusted with their care. This is a tale of wrongdoing and the victimization of innocents, of forgiveness and redemption, that you won’t be able to put down until the last line of the last page.
—Gale Martin, author of Grace Unexpected (2012) and Indie Excellence finalist Don Juan in Hankey, PA
Author - Lenore Hart
This family saga spans three generations of abuse, hoarded secrets, crippling guilt and, ultimately, a cleansing, cathartic redemption. Marcinkowski's great talent is for the breathtakingly perfect detail. And she knows when to employ, with stunning impact, a single shocking action that will turn the tide of a character's life for good.
—Lenore Hart, author of The Raven’s Bride and Book of the Month Club selection Becky: The Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher
