Ghost River by Tony Birch

Book Description

'You find yourself down at the bottom of the river, for some it's time to give into her. But other times, young fellas like you two, you got to fight your way back. Show the river you got courage and is ready to live.' The river is a place of history and secrets. For Ren and Sonny, two unlikely friends, it's a place of freedom and adventure. For a group of storytelling vagrants, it's a refuge. And for the isolated daughter of a cult reverend, it's an escape. Each time they visit, another secret slips into its ancient waters. But change and trouble are coming - to the river and to the lives of those who love it. Who will have the courage to fight and survive and what will be the cost? Praise for Tony Birch 'Throughout The Promise there's the sense of a writer who has landed in the sweet spot of his gift. Weekend Australian 'Blood is a humanist masterpiece that has been worth the wait.' Australian Book Review
