Review: Three Rivers Rising (Richards)

Title: Three Rivers Rising
Author: Richards
Pages: 289
Genre: Historical Fiction
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

I met this author in January at a publisher dinner. This is her first novel and she was quite overwhelmed with the number of people there to meet her and hear about the book. I was excited to read the book after listening to her talk about it, but I am sad to admit that it has taken almost 4 months for it to find its way to the top of my reading pile.
Though this is a novel, it is based on an actual, and tragic, event in American History--the Johnstown Flood in 1889. Told by multiple narrators, this novel explores forbidden romance and the randomness of disaster. Simple but powerful.
