Manufacturer Description

Verity, running away from betrayal, travels west in 1778 with George Rogers Clark and his small army. Trey, Clark's guide, was content with the virgin wilderness and his freedom until he saw Verity fighting with a goat, of all things, on a muddy hillside. Can she learn to trust again? Can he come to grips with a need to be footloose? They find hostile Indains, all the dangers of river travel, and each other while heading toward the conflict at Kaskaskia, in the Illinois country.

What They Are Saying About Like A River, My Love

Travel with Verity, Trey and the families under Clark's supervision, as they navigate the Ohio River to their new home (in the Illinois Country in 1778). Characters are well defined and invite readers to share quiet, and harrowing, moments in the long journey. There's not enough time for anyone to become bored, when pressed with the needs of survival. Join them on the flatboats for a close up look, or become part of the forests with eyes watching the weary travelers. Scenic descriptions provide marvelous backdrop for much of the action and will have you turning pages to see the characters work their way through hardships.

Marilyn Gardiner has done well in capturing the essence of the times, and the courage of people to find a new place to start new lives. As depicted by the title, the plot, suspense and romance, flow, not always steadily, but sometimes with a fierceness that dares readers to leave the story. Like A River, the tale's depth will hold you fast until you reach the end of the journey.

Meet Marilyn Gardiner

LIKE A RIVER, MY LOVE is close to my heart because the setting is near my birthplace and hometown in southern Illinois. Sparta is where I began, at eight years old, to dream of publishing a book someday. Sparta is where the public librarian (Bess Brown, now deceased) and high school English teachers began encouraging me to put my ideas on paper. Sparta is where my grandmother, with only a 6th grade education, informed the family that I would one day write the books she never could. Sparta is where I began to write, first in my head and then with a pencil. I now write at a computer, with a loyal and supportive husband, two grown daughters, and a total of eight grandchildren cheering me on. Since my first memory, music and books have been my passion. Music is food for my soul and books are the stuff of which dreams are made. I am a great dreamer!
