Where All the Rivers Run (The Beautiful-Ugly Trilogy) by James Snyder

After being orphaned at age six, sixteen-year-old Connelly Pierce--who has spent a decade, being passed from family to family, or as often no family at all, but always fighting for her very existence, her right to survive--has given up. Even worse, the system that has controlled her life for all those years is about to give up on her. But just before she is sent into long-term care at a California state mental hospital, a little miracle happens.

An intern at the clinic who has taken an interest in her finds an unopened letter at the bottom of Connelly's raggedy old knapsack. The letter is from a distant cousin of Connelly's named Elizabeth Walker, or Liz, who has recently lost her husband Jack, left behind a 57,000 acre ranch in Texas, and has since been looking for Connelly. The intern realizes this is the girl's last chance. If Cousin Liz won't help her, or if Connelly won't accept that help, her life, in any normal sense, may be over. But what the intern doesn't realize, is that calling that phone number he finds at the bottom of the letter is about to change two women's lives, forever, in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

About the Author

James Snyder was born in Memphis, Tennessee and fell in love with the cadence and sound of storytelling as a child, listening to the meandering tales of his Southern grandmothers and great aunts. While still a child, his family moved to Napa Valley, California where he attended middle and high school, and began taking writing classes at the local college. He left after a year to join the military, and was a soldier with a tactical mobile operations unit in Germany. It was there, while pulling a Harz mountaintop guard duty one night during a snowstorm, he had the chance encounter with another soldier that ultimately became the genesis for his military thriller, AMERICAN WARRIOR.

His second novel is the suspense thriller, DESOLATION RUN. In addition, he has just released the YA/NA trilogy, THE BEAUTIFUL-UGLY.

"Berlin Diaries" is his blog at JamesSnyder.net where he further discusses the backgrounds of his writings.

He currently lives in Texas.
