With her evocative prose and finely tuned insights into family relationships, Mary Alice Monroe has earned legions of fans and numerous awards. Reminiscent of Anne Rivers Siddons, her writing is a delightful blend of southern authenticity and rich emotional drama, and she delivers an engaging and complex novel with Time Is a River.

Mia Landon travels to a mountain sanctuary near Asheville, North Carolina, while she begins her recovery from breast cancer. There, in the cabin at Watkins Glenn, Mia discovers the long lost journal of a well-known fly-fisherwoman from the 1920s, Kate Watkins.

Reading Kate's inspiring words recounting her sensational adventures on the river coaxes an otherwise withdrawn Mia from her shell and gives her the desire to reconnect with the world around her. And as she learns to fish, she also uncovers surprising secrets that span generations - and a hidden scandal that has the power to change not only her own life, but also those who live at Watkins Glenn.

Enthralling, heartwarming, and moving, Time Is a River is a novel that wonderfully captures the complexity of human connections - to the natural world, to each other, to one's self, and ultimately to one's soul. Download and start listening now!

    " I finished this book but don't really know why. I found the main character to be a bit tiresome and the love story was just not very believable. It played too much on the main character's breast cancer and her identification with a mysterious dead woman. The century old cabin had been vacant for several decades but the sofa and armoire were still first rate antiques and the books and fine china were still intact. In real life,since the cabin was next to a river, the books would have been full of mold and mildew. the blue velvet sofa would have been full of mouse nests and the armoire would have been warped beyond repair - to say nothing of the vandalism that would have occurred.
