Hillary Jordan recommends
The Second Mrs. Hockaday (2017)
"I gobbled this book up in one in luscious sitting, wishing I could slow down and savor the prose but too eager to find out what happened. Rivers is an unflinching truth teller. Her characters are deeply human, drawn with compassion and exquisite detail."
At the Edge of the Haight (2021)
"This book pulled me deep into a world I knew little about, bringing the struggles of its young, homeless inhabitantsthe kind of people we avoid eye contact with on the streetto vivid, poignant life. The novel demands that you take a close look. If you knew, could you still ignore, fear or condemn them? And knowing, how can you ever forget?"
