Recent release “There Is a River” from Page Publishing author Jacqueline Hartland is a stirring and entertaining novel written in the voice of ten-year-old Callie Clemmens, who shares her life beside the river that gives her moments of joy amid the stress of her penurious circumstances, neglectful mother, and violently abusive father. Callie grows up over three years marked by childish triumphs and devastating tragedies, until the fateful day that changed her life forever.
Jacqueline Hartland, a lifelong storyteller who was inspired to begin writing after watching a school play in the fourth grade, has completed her new book “There Is a River”: a gripping and potent work that keeps the pages turning until its satisfying conclusion.
Callie Clemmens, ten, felt herself being pulled by an invisible canvas belt to the dreaded Watford Shoe, where all her relatives ended up as gray ghosts for life. Callie, in her desperation not to attend, found answers when her family moved to a tiny cottage on the Monocacy river, where gay vacationers in ten cottages around hers brought joy and tragedy into her life but erased the conveyor belt forever by what happened in a quiet meadow, a thing Callie thought would never happen.
Published by Page Publishing, Jacqueline Hartland’s engrossing book is an excellent choice for avid realistic fiction readers.
Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “There Is a River” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
