The Dark Path to the River

'“Particularly successful in building suspense . . . Sensitive and ambitious.” —The New York Times Book Review   “I haven’t enjoyed a book so much in a long time. . . . There are books you keep reading because you are convinced that they are well-written and thematically rich, etc., and then there are the books that are all those things and also you can’t put them down. The Dark Path to the River fell in the latter category for me. I fell in love with Olivia and Jenny . . . and just altogether was taken in. That doesn’t happen to me often, and I appreciate it a lot. I didn’t want the pleasure to end. I’m so glad I have your other novels to look forward to.” —Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible   “A knockout of a novel—impressive in its scope but at the same time intimate and personal . . . An extraordinary book.” —Elisabeth Forsythe Hailey, A Woman of Independent Means   “Joanne Leedom-Ackerman knows suspense like Hitchcock. . . . But what distinguishes the novel is its characters. . . . [They] give this fine novel its power.” —Washington Post   “A book that provokes thought and is most entertaining to read.” —Los Angeles Times   “The story’s power comes from its daring and imaginative scope, its sense of humanity and human connectedness across . . . the ‘small’ events of life and the larger events which come to be called history.” —The Dallas Morning News  '
