I read Three Rivers Rising: A Novel of the Jamestown Flood
by Jame Richards and thought it was an amazing story of how far someone will go to be with the one they love. It is narrated by a couple of people that in the end have an amazing connection between each other. I highly recommend!!!!

So glad to hear you say that. I've actually had this one sitting on my shelf for weeks, but have been dragging my feet. I tend to be averse to novels in verse (and the American Colonial Period) so...But, I've been hearing good things -- guess I should step 2 it!

What do you do when all the watery reads are already checked out and with really long hold lists?

library lady said...

All of them?!? Really? Wow! I have to ask, are you referring to the list of books posted on the blog, or are you also including the Waterworks bib you picked up from the library too? The reason I ask is because there's lots of oldies on the print copy I've got here (less holds likely) as well as lots more options. If you don't have one, you can find a stack by this month's teen display (water themed books). If that doesn't help, let me know, & we'll work something out. :)

I haven't heard of any of those books before but some of them sound good. I'm going to read them sometime.

library lady said...

I hope you do--and be sure to let us know what you think! (please) :)

I'm currently reading boys,bears, and a serious pair of hiking boots. I think it is a really good book and I seriously recommend it.
