The River By Michael Neale

" You were made for The River . . .”
Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure.
But something holds him back—the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on The River when he was just five years old—something no child should ever see.
Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River. He remains trapped, afraid to take hold of the life awaiting him.
When he returns to The River after years away, his heart knows he is finally home. His destiny is within reach. Claiming that destiny will be the hardest—and bravest—thing he has ever done.

The River was author Michael Neale's very first book, and I pray that it is not his last. Michael writes from the heart, and pulls you in.
The characters come to life in this book of healing, forgiveness, and adventure, and most importantly living life with a purpose. Micheal takes you on a journey you will not soon forget.You will fall in love with the character Ezra as I did, I am sure.
The River took hold of my heart and has not let it go. I really enjoyed this read.  I wonderful read indeed.
