I have read several books by Ms Redfern and enjoyed them all. She puts a lot of emotion into the characters and her writing.

This is the story of a family who is almost destroyed by the fact that there is an inhabited cabin sitting on the corner of their inherited property. Someone is living in it, she is known as The River Witch. Very complex plot, very interesting. A series of events, each one piggybacking the one before.

The above dilemma is complicated by the fact that they are also mourning the drowning death of their 8-year-old daughter, one half of a set of twins.

Lots of conflict, lots of emotions, lots of angry decisions and actions. It asks the age-old question: Is money more important than happiness?

Each chapter is told by a different member of the family. The reader truly gets a comprehensive look at what is happening.

The characters are well-developed. They are flawed, they are human.

I loved the resolution at the end. I was not far into the book when I knew it would be a 5 star read for me.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
