This is one of those special novels that one should read slowly, little by little, in order to enjoy it. Its prose is so rich, so beautiful that it flows like a peaceful stream and not like the wild waters of the Mississippi on whose shores a big part of the action takes place. The author through her story travels the reader back to the past of the American South; a past that smells of death and of change; a past full of conflict and love; a past where racial discriminations were the canon and where dreams were not that easy to come true.
This is the story of a father and a son, Bernard and Mickey Moe Levy. Mickey is a young Jew who in 1962 meets and falls in love with a beautiful and brave girl that goes by the name of Laura Anne, whom he's determined to have as his wife. However, no matter what he, or she for that matter, wants their coming together is not a given, since Laura Anne's parents refuse to give her their blessing, because of the unknown origins of Mickey Moe's father. Bernard always was, to say the least, a mystery to the locals in Guilford, Mississippi. As the old-timers could recall, he arrived one day in town with pocketfuls of gold and decided to make a home there, but nobody, or almost nobody, had any clue as to where he came from and how he got his money, thus even after he was dead, the people never stopped throwing suspicious glances towards his household.
So, who was Bernard? Where did he start from and how did he end up there? How come he got to marry beautiful Beadie who was everything that he was not? And what was his real relationship with Bald Horace and his, virtually and visually, enormous sister, Aurora Mae?

I thought this one would be a nice Friday night start, to be continued in a day or two. Ha. I have to say I am enthralled by this writer and her sense of place and time. I am in Vietnam again, this time with Mickey Moe, and I can feel the heat of combat and the confusion that looms amid the chaos of a firefight that arises from nowhere. And I am in the old familiar South again, this time in the twenties, just trying to survive. An engaging second effort from a talented writer. And for this old timer, another weekend lost, but oh so highly recommended, this one.

I've just finished Mary Glickman's newest book, One More River. Glickman has done it again! Her characters are so real, and she brings you into their lives with a vivid evocation of the South as it was evolving through the 20th century. It is impressive how she manages to create dialect so convincing that you would swear she is from the South and not Boston born! Her story is a novel, a mystery, a family saga, and a tale that actually precedes that of the always fascinating Sassaports Mary introduced us to in Home in the Morning. My only regret is that the book ended. I wanted more!

This is another wonderful historic novel from author Mary Glickman. As I enjoyed reading her first book tremendously, I was thrilled to find the story taking off from 'Home in the Morning.' In 'One More River' the author narrates the quest of Mickey Moe Levy, a minor character in her previous novel, as he uncovers and copes with the difficulties of understanding the truth about his father. Engaging plot with superb character development. I loved it - better than her first!

This is one of those novels everyone must read. While it's based in history, it's way more than that. I was so touched by the characters and story line that I wished it did not have to end. I both cried and laughed while reading, which does not happen to me very often. It was just a terrific story that I loved, loved, loved. Thank you

Mickey Moe was just four years old when his father, a World War 11 soldier, died in action. There is some back and forth from the father's life to the son's young adult years. Mickey Moe, a not very wealthy Jewish boy, is trying desperately to win the approval of his girlfriend's parents who are somewhat at the upper end of the social scale. It seems the (hopefully) future in-laws question his bloodlines. Mickey decides to uncover his father's somewhat cloudy past and prove that he is good son-in-law material. Now this was the beginning of the sometimes scary and bloody civil rights era. Mickey Moe, a young Jewish man, travelling in the backwoods of the emotional South where hostilities grew a little hot at times, found himself and his black travel companion in more than one scary situation. The book covers these travels and the many obstacles along the way for Mickey Moe to discover his heritage and the past of an image of the man he so wanted to be an upstanding citizen. In several ways the life of the father and the son were somewhat similar. Along the way, Mickey meets some interesting characters including Bald Horace and his enormous sister, Aurora. All is well that ends well. I found the book an interesting read, but not so much so that I plan to read it again. The lack of quotation marks and some other punctuation niceties was extremely frustrating. I should have read all of the reviews before I started reading because these omissions were mentioned by several other reviewers. Because of those omissions, which caused some confusion as to which character was being portrayed at a given time, I can only give a 3 star rating.
