Where the River Runs
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
For readers who love rural fiction, Fleur McDonald’s latest offering, Where the River Runs, is a must-read. The story follows the journey of Chelsea as she returns home to the family farm with her four-year-old daughter Aria. Chelsea has recently quit her career as a concert pianist and her homecoming is tense. As Chelsea’s story unfurls and she navigates her new life in a small community, we encounter some terrific characters, including a past favourite, Detective Dave Burrows. Without giving too much of the plot away, Where the River Runs is a compelling family drama with a good dash of romance and murder mystery thrown in.
