OVER THE FALLS BY REBECCA HODGE

1.~ I could picture her surrounded by embroidered pillows on her ancient sofa, her feet propped on a hassock, a coffee mug, and an ashtray by her side. The curtains would be closed tight to block any glare on the television screen and a low wattage lamp in the corner would provide enough light to avoid tripping, but not enough to read by. I could hear some sort of talk show blaring in the background. Since Dad's death decades before, the TV never had a chance to cool down *

2.~ It took about five minutes for the stream of pointless news to pause. When the break came- a break probably prompted by the fact she was reaching for a cigarette and fumbling for a lighter -I jumped in " Mom, I need to as you something. What do you know about the way Sawyer died?" *


SUMMARY:


It's early June in the mountains of Eastern Tennessee, and the idyllic beauty of the landscape belies the darkness that lurks beneath the surface. Bryn Collins has been living in isolation for fourteen years after her fiance, Sawyer, jilted her for her despised sister, Del. Although a life-threatening accident ended her days navigating the perils of whitewater, she still finds refuge kayaking in the local lakes.

But Bryn's placid life hits the skids when an unwelcome cast of characters reenters her life. Del goes mysteriously missing, and her fourteen-year-old son, Josh, arrives to ask for Bryn's help finding her. His father, Sawyer, had been killed in a plane crash and he has no one else to turn to. Carl, an unruly punk the sisters knew years before, is desperate to find Del because she owes him money.

Bryn and Josh follow an ever-elusive trail to Colorado, and at the annual Mountain Games competition in Vail, they finally confront the truth. For Bryn, all roads lead to the river, and on vicious Colorado whitewaters, she must muster every ounce of courage and strength to save what she most loves in the world.
