Leslie Gould recommends
River's Song (2011)
(Inn at Shining Waters, book 1)
Melody Carlson
"In River’s Song, Melody Carlson beautifully tells a generational story of a family living alongside the banks of Oregon’s Siuslaw River. Told with sensitivity and insight the story includes a Native American thread, deals with issues of abuse, and weaves an ending full of redemption and grace. I can’t wait to read the next novel in the series!"
The Patient One (2019)
(Walnut Creek, book 1)
Shelley Shepard Gray
"Gray has created an endearing cast of characters...that both delights and surprises—and kept me thinking about the story long after I turned the last page. Bravo!"
