I didn't think this would turn into a love story, but it did. This book had everything. Drama, suspsense, love, it's a complete package. I think Ms. Haskin should make this book into a movie. I can see LisaRaye playing the role as Ms. Connie and Denzel as Dean. Then, she should get Taraji Henson to play Peaches.

A River Moves Forward proves that Selena Haskins is a prolific writer. Her story takes place in Chicago, where I currently live and each scene and life condition in that era are accurate and quite believable. Ms. Haskins shared that she has not been to Chicago, but she nails it as she tells the story of her main characters Dean and Connie and their families. I was glued to this book and hung on to her every word. Great Journey!

Connie Morris grew up in the Cabrini Green Projects in Chicago, known as one of the roughest projects around. The middle sister, she always felt different. Not only was her skin tone a lighter shade than her two sisters, she also had an unusual eye color. Her mother adored her while her father was mentally and physically abusive towards her. Why? She did not know. When tragedy strikes, Connie discovers a secret her mother kept hidden from her. She is left wondering about her true identity and what she plans to do with her life. When a friend suggests a way to make a little money, Connie never expected it to lead to something that she could make into a career. Being in the public eye, her face is plastered in the papers and on TV. In all her successes the one thing she is lacking is true love. When she thought she found it, she put her career first. Will it be too late to rekindle the fire that once was? Or will it be too little, too late? “A River Moves Forward” by Selena Haskins was a novel about family, love, lies, betrayal and learning to let go and move forward. Although fictional, it read like an autobiography at times. Connie's character was easy to relate to. There were quite a few editing issues throughout the novel. Saturated with so many details, the story was slow in spots. Also, it became repetitive with the back and forth with Connie's love interest and it left this reader frustrated. The ending was cut and dry. Meaning after all was said and done, the story was wrapped up like a pretty present with a bow on top. It was just too sudden and too neat. Reviewed by: LeonaR

I thought this was a very good book for a first-time author. I fell in love with Connie and enjoyed watching her grow from a young woman to a mature adult. She overcame so much. She really deserved all of her blessing in the end.
