River's End

In the final story of The Inn at Shining Waters, Anna Larson's granddaughter Sarah is beginning to find her independence. But her relationship with her parents suffer as a result and she travels away from all that is familiar.

While the solace of the river calls Sarah back, surprises await upon her return. Three generations of family heartbreak and disappointments converge at Shining Waters as Sarah finds God right in the center of it all.

My Thoughts: I have to admit I didn't enjoy this one as quite much as River's Song and River's Call although I can't pinpoint why. I think part of it may be that it's been nearly a year since I read the first two and so my mind was fuzzy on the back story. I didn't much care for the storyline of Sarah running back to the commune lifestyle. I did love the ending - it wasn't one of those forced closures of all storylines but felt more natural. I will continue to look for works by Melody Carlson.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy of River's Home available via NetGalley.
