By the time you realize there's a problem, it may already be too late. "Leafy Rivers" tells the story of the titular character as she faces life in the later nineteenth century. One of the finest novels from Indiana's long history, it is filled with unique characters who offer a glimpse of life at the time while entertaining readers with an adventurous and great story. "Leafy Rivers" is a must for fans of literary fiction, or classical American literature.

I am still reading this book, & I am enjoying it. The stories are well written. It surpises me this was set in the 1800's. It is fairly modern. The love stories are very touching. I have read a few other Jessamyn West books, & I WILL read more.
