Book Review: “Go as a River” – A Novel

Are you in the mood for a mesmerizing and unforgettable coming-of-age tale that will tug at your heartstrings and leave you in awe? Then Go as a River, by Shelley Read, is a book that needs to be on your to-be-read list! Set amid Colorado’s breathtaking wild beauty, this novel tells the story of a young woman who encounters great hardship and heartbreak, but manages to find the courage and resilience to rebuild her life in the face of adversity.

Victoria Nash is a resilient seventeen-year-old who runs the household on her family’s peach farm in the small ranch town of Iola, Colorado. She is the sole surviving female in a family of troubled men, but is determined to make the most of her life despite the obstacles she faces. Wilson Moon is a young drifter with a mysterious past, displaced from his tribal land and determined to live life on his own terms. Victoria and Wil meet by chance on a street corner, and their meeting sets off a chain of events that will change both of their lives forever.

Go as a River is a tragic and uplifting novel of love and loss, family and survival, and – most importantly – hope. It is a stunning debut that explores what it means to lead your life as if it were a river – flowing and gathering, finding a way forward even when circumstances threaten to dam its flow.

Read’s lyrical voice is a force of nature that will capture your heart and leave you completely entranced. Her attention to detail and vivid descriptions of the Colorado landscape make the setting come alive, transporting you to a world of rugged beauty and raw emotion. You’ll feel as if you’re right there with Victoria as she struggles to survive in the wilderness, charting the changes in herself and finding the strength to move forward and rebuild all that she has lost.

Inspired by true events surrounding the destruction of the town of Iola in the 1960s, Go as a River is a story of deeply held love in the face of hardship and loss, but also finding courage, resilience, friendship, and – finally – home where least expected. The novel offers a poignant reminder that life is fleeting and that we never know what’s around the corner, but that we should always try to live with courage, grace, and a sense of adventure.

So, what are you waiting for? Add Go as a River to your reading list today and prepare to be transported to a world of rugged beauty, raw emotion, and unforgettable storytelling. This is a book that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading it, and will inspire you to live your life with purpose, courage, and determination – just like Victoria Nash.
