    One thought on “Across the River”

    1. This is an excellent book. It’s set in a small town in Wisconsin, with changes looming. The story is filled with interesting characters, all drawn with depth, humor, and empathy. The author does an excellent job of sketching the rural setting, with the details following as the story unfolds. The characters are engaging and real, and following them as they reflect and grow during the book is so enjoyable. I very much recommend this book.

Small town life isn't as simple as it may seem, but there is humor and love within those challeng [...]

Where the White Bass fishing and Walleye fishing is a ritual . They are descended upon by Chicago fishermen and fishermen from all over , it's amazing. I plan to read the next book in this trilogy . Fun read

    4. A highly enjoyable read! The author deftly weaves the personal growth of the individual characters with that of the small town on the cusp of big changes to create a highly entertaining look at small town life and the folks that call it home.

    5. Across the River is set in a location where I felt complete comfort. A mix of the old and familiar along with the new, which more often than not brings conflict. Enjoyable characters. I truly enjoyed my trip to Bassville.

    6. This novel met my biggest reading need: to get away to a small town with an excellently named river, and meet the people who live there, and enter into their lives. I think my favorite character was Grandma Nancy. This was a fun read.
