After the River the Sun

(2013)
A novel by

 
 
Will Eckhart find the courage to rise from his past - and climb to his future? This quest for home is a stunning companion to Eva of the Farm.

When Eckhart Lyon arrives at Sunrise Orchard, all he wants to do is play video games and read about King Arthur's knights. Anything that helps him forget that his parents drowned in a river, forget his own cowardliness. Eckhart doesn't want to clear the dead orchard, or explore the canyon, or do anything else that stern Uncle Al asks. After all, Uncle Al is only taking him in on trial, and Eckhart can't imagine the orchard ever becoming his real home.

Then, up in the canyon, he meets Eva - a girl with a wild imagination and boundless hope who knows all about King Arthur's knights. With her help, Eckhart sees that he is on a knightly quest of his own: a quest for home and courage. But what if he's forced to choose between a new home and his most treasured possession - a gift from his mom?

In this companion to Eva of the Farm, author Dia Calhoun shows that with friendship, determination, and the grace of nature, we can overcome tragedy and rise toward the sun.
