How gorgeous does this book look? I’m going to be on the blogtour for this book when it’s released in April but it’s so lovely, I wanted to share the beautiful cover and details of the book with you now. Here’s what the book is about:
Sometimes you must carve your own path.
On a cool autumn morning, Victoria Nash heads into her village pulling a rickety wagon filled with late-season peaches. As she nears an intersection, a stranger in town stops to ask her the way.
She makes the decision to walk with him. ‘Go as a river,’ he tells her as they part ways.
So begins a mezmerising story of split-second decisions and considered acts that make up one woman’s tumultuous life, as Victoria begins to absorb and follow his words.
Gathering all the pieces of her small and extraordinary existence, spinning through the eddies of desire, heartbreak and betrayal, she will arrive at a single rocky decision that will change her life for ever.
Go As a River will be published by Doubleday on 13th April in hardback, audiobook and for e-readers.
It is available to pre-order now. I’m grateful to the publishers for my early review copy
and to Anne at Random Things Tours for the opportunity to be part of the tour.
