Rivers of the Souls is a soul stirring love story. Antoinette (Toni) and Jerome were high school sweethearts who went their separate ways after high school and through fate, crossed each other's paths twenty years later. But was that love really lost or were Toni and Jerome just going through the motions? Twenty years seems like a lifetime and things have changed tremendously with their families, friends and themselves. While this story explores Toni and Jerome's emotions at the changes and needs in their lives, it also examines that of their friends and families. The secondary characters are very important to this story as it gives the novel its completeness. Leslie Esdaile has crafted a touching story utilising metaphors, foreshadowing, detail, debates and loose ends to leave you hanging to await the sequel. This is not a neatly packaged romance novel where everything is happily ever after because when completed, you have no idea what the future holds for the characters. Excellent story!
