Let Go, Let the River, the second book in the Canoes in Winter series, will have readers wondering if Sam and Sally can ever reunite. Soon, although having said a final goodbye after that fateful night when they finally consummated their ill-fated love, they are forced back together briefly to share a tragic loss. And they go their separate ways again. With Sally securely at home and Sam out of the picture, Bill does change; he steps the control and abuse up another notch. Everyone wonders, worries, if Sally will ever say, enough is enough? And Sam, although still dogged by the painful memory of losing Sally, takes up with a young, alluring school teacher in a devil-may-care manner he never imagined he was capable of. Call the shaping of their futures fate or divine intervention, something out there isn’t taking “no” for an answer, spurring Sam and Sally on down their individual, often painful paths toward the healing they both need if they are ever to become whole. Readers will enjoy the plentiful humor that is sprinkled in, along with the stepped-up drama. And true to Canoes in Winter—Beneath the Surface, Let Go, Let the River is guaranteed to tug at the readers heart strings.
