#BookReview: River to Redemption by Ann H. Gabhart

30 Jul

River to Redemption is a wonderful story! Gabhart grabbed my attention on page one and held it firmly until the very end. This stirring novel draws from true events, and the historical facts are depicted with a vividness that brings them to life. Adria and Louis are memorable characters; their strength and courage are an inspiration to those who know their story. I loved River to Redemption and am eager to learn more about the history that inspired this beautifully told tale!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.


About the book:

Orphaned in the cholera epidemic of 1833, Adria Starr was cared for by a slave named Louis, a man who stayed in Springfield, Kentucky, when anyone with means had fled. A man who passed up the opportunity to escape his bondage and instead tended to the sick and buried the dead. A man who, twelve years later, is being sold by his owners despite his heroic actions. Now nineteen, Adria has never forgotten what Louis did for her. She’s determined to find a way to buy Louis’s freedom. But in 1840s Kentucky, she’ll face an uphill battle.
