Overview

NEW ADULT ROMANCE by R.K. Ryals

In Mississippi, there's a legend about a Singing River, a tragic love story that ended with an entire Indian tribe singing a death chant as they marched stoically into the Pascagoula River to die ...

At eighteen, Haven Ambrose isn't just a high school graduate. In her head, she's an aspiring writer, a traveler, a chef, a slayer of injustice, an astronomer, an archaeologist, and the love child of a famous, rich musician. But reality is harsher. Reality is overdue bills, a crumbling trailer, an absent father, an old addiction, and a hot, crushing summer that may end in disappointment.

For twenty year-old River Brayden, life seems good, but appearances can be deceiving. The oldest son of a wealthy family, he has finished his first year at Harvard to return home for the summer only to discover his younger brother headed down an unforgiving road.

They will be drawn together by a song. For during the late summer, they say the Pascagoula death chant can still be heard near the Singing River. Its call is haunting, its chant a testament of love and sacrifice. It calls to some ... beckoning.

    I may have won this book, but it is so damn good I'd have BOUGHT

    I may have won this book, but it is so damn good I'd have BOUGHT it! It is an exceptional story - well written with three dimensional characters and it is chocked full of twists and turns. It is a love story, a who done it, and a search for a local legend. There are many themes woven into the book: Family, Drug addiction, Social mores and responsibilities, Class lines, and most of all - Love. This book is one of my favorites this year and I highly recommend you take the time to read it!

    The Singing River by RK Ryals is an amazing book. The story is very interesting and it had my attention from the very beginning.

    Haven Ambrose is an eighteen year old high school graduate who is born into poverty. She lives with her mother and is a waitress at the local diner. Haven has college put on hold for a while until her mother gets a job.

    River Brayden is young man who is born into money. He is attending college but is home for the Summer break. His younger brother, Roman is going through some issues and River is wondering what is going on with him.  

    Haven and River’s journey together begins. It all starts out about the legend of the river. Earlier that day, they met each other for a few minutes at the diner when he was with his younger brother Roman. That afternoon after work, Haven’s mom tells her about her going camping with her boss’s friend. He is investigating about the legend of the river. River’s uncle shows up and he finds out about the camping trip and he decides to go and bring his younger brother, Roman along too whether he wants to or not. They didn’t know until the day of the camping trip that they were going to be together investigating the legend. 

    What will happen between Haven and River on this camping trip?

    RK Ryals has done an awesome job writing this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book. I highly recommend my friends to check this out.

    Haven Ambrose has had a hard life, but I'm pretty sure you're no

    Haven Ambrose has had a hard life, but I'm pretty sure you're not going to tell her that. She's determined and hard working and loves her family with a fierce loyalty. River Brayden leads the charmed life: money and career and a place in the world. But things aren't always how they appear. River's father was brutally murdered and when he returns home for the summer, his finds his brother isn't faring as well in his attempt to hold things together. He agrees to stay on to help Roman, and circumstance brings the three of them to the Brayden cabin where a research project on the legend of the Singing River tests all their resolve. What I loved about this book was the incredible number of story lines and themes melded together to create a real, raw, and utterly captivating world. Haven is "just a waitress," but she's honest and noble. River seems to have it all, but he's trapped in a world of rules and expectations. Every character has their own turmoil, and the story speaks of struggle and desperation in a way that makes you hurt for them, want for them. It's the kind of book that will stick with you. The kind you remember.
    I loved it. Can't wait for more.

    The Singing River is aptly titled, not just because of the legen

    The Singing River is aptly titled, not just because of the legend in the book, but because the book itself has it's own song. It flows, almost melodically from the pages as you read. The Singing River is an emotional and heartwrenching look into the lives of two very different people, each broken in their own way. R.K. Ryals manages to convey the deepest feelings through her words. The reality of those feelings, strikes you at your core. Each time I read one of her books, I don't think I can be more impressed than before, and each time, I am proven wrong. River and Haven's story moved me to tears, made me laugh, made me melt, and made me fall in love.
