Description
Doss Michaels and Abbie Coleman seemed like an unlikely pair. He was a fishing guide and struggling artist from a South Georgia trailer park. She was the beautiful only child of South Carolina's most powerful senator. Yet once they met by accident, they each felt they'd found their true soul mate.. For ten years of wedded bliss they considered themselves the luckiest people in the world. When Abbie discovers a lump in her breast, everything changes, and life as she and Doss have known it ceases to exist. After four years of experimental treatments, unending nausea, toxic drugs, and the best medicine her family's money can buy, Abbie is ready to throw in the towel. But Doss is not. And so they steal away from the hospital together in the middle of the night, and start a 130-mile trip down the Saint Mary's River--a voyage Doss promised Abbie in the early days of their courtship. With them is Abbie's list of the ten things she has hoped to accomplish in life. There is nothing extraordinary on her list--no Everest climbs, no marathons or tours of remote corners of the globe--Abbie's wishes are for the simple things that years of illness have denied her. Heart-wrenchingly emotional, skillfully written, and ultimately uplifting, Where the River Ends is rich with compelling characters in extraordinary circumstances. Readers will root for Abbie and Doss as they make their journey though love, loss, hope, and redemption, and applaud this new novel from a talented and successful author.
