As soon as the novel begins, the life of River Fillian changes in ways she couldn't have imagined. From start to stop, readers are taken on an action packed trip down the Mississippi River in the early 1800s. River calls upon her life as a river rat to avenge her father and find her place in the world. The language takes some getting used to, but adds a delightful level of character and texture. The flavor of New Orleans in 1812 comes alive as River uses her wits to escape danger and follow the clues to her father's final adventure.
