Reviews

"O'Garden's story is emotional and remarkable and if you are looking for a story that shows how to cope with grief and grow as a person this is something you should pick up." - Nerdy Girl Express "The award-winning author takes us on her family river rafting trip through the wilds of Montana, in the hopes of healing from her challenging past. Impelled on this journey at age sixty-two by the unexpected death of one of her six siblings, O'Garden weaves the story of her troubled childhood with the chronicle of her harrowing eight-day voyage on her way to finding forgiveness and peaceful waters." - The Rumpus
