About the Book

Two Rivers

A haunting new novel set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and civil rights movement is an examination of the power of grief, and the importance of forgiveness.

Two Rivers is the story of Harper Montgomery, a widowed, single-father who works for the railroad in rural Vermont. In 1980, twelve years after the tragic death of his wife and the subsequent birth of his daughter, Harper remains paralyzed with grief over the loss of his young wife and haunted by his involvement in what would likely appear to be a horrific, racial crime. Wracked with sorrow and remorse, he wants only to make amends for his mistakes. And then one autumn morning, when a train derails in Two Rivers, and a fifteen-year-old, pregnant, black girl emerges from the water, he thinks he might have found his chance at atonement. But soon, Harper begins to fear that her arrival is not at all the accident it at first appeared to be, and he is forced to not only face the demons of his past but the tragedy that spawned them.
