Book Description

After being orphaned at age six, sixteen-year-old Connelly Pierce—who has spent a decade, being passed from family to family, or as often no family at all, but always fighting for her very existence, her right to survive—has given up. Even worse, the system that has controlled her life for all those years is about to give up on her. But just before she is sent into long-term care at a California state mental hospital, a little miracle happens.

An intern at the clinic who has taken an interest in her finds an unopened letter at the bottom of Connelly’s raggedy old knapsack. The letter is from a distant cousin of Connelly’s named Elizabeth Walker, or Liz, who has recently lost her husband Jack, left behind a 57,000 acre ranch in Texas, and has since been looking for Connelly. The intern realizes this is the girl’s last chance. If Cousin Liz won’t help her, or if Connelly won’t accept that help, her life, in any normal sense, may be over. But what the intern doesn’t realize, is that calling that phone number he finds at the bottom of the letter is about to change two women’s lives, forever, in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

Book Three of the Beautiful-Ugly Trilogy

About the Author

James Snyder was born in Memphis, Tennessee and fell in love with the cadence and sound of storytelling as a child, listening to the meandering tales of his Southern grandmothers and great aunts. While still a child, his family moved to Napa Valley, California where he attended middle and high school, and began taking writing classes at the local college. He left after a year to join the military, and was a soldier with a tactical mobile operations unit in Germany when, pulling a Harz mountaintop guard duty one night during a snowstorm, he had the chance encounter with another soldier that ultimately became the genesis for his debut military thriller AMERICAN WARRIOR.

He is also the author of the suspense thriller DESOLATION RUN, the young-adult/new-adult trilogy THE BEAUTIFUL-UGLY, the short story collection TALES OF THE LATE TWENTIETH CENTURY, and other literary works.

"Berlin Diaries" is his occasional blog at JamesSnyder.net where he further discusses the backgrounds of his, and other, writings.

He currently lives in Texas.

Interesting novel, but got too metaphysical at some points, which made the flow of reading it tedious at times. Liked the story line overall though.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE ALL THE RIVERS RUN March 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Obsessively this is the story of a shattered and darkly damaged teen-aged girl who is moved to a ranch in the hill country of Texas, where she learns to exorcise her demons through the medium of her paintings. James Synder draws as accurate a picture of the souls of the girl and her much older cousin as any man is capable of drawing woman. More significantly he draws the lines, colors, and soul of the harsh hill country as he reveals the mystical was that the land can mold people. (This is the first five star rating that I've give. It is the first Kindle book that I had to look up to see.)

I liked part one and part two much better than part three. I am glad that I did get part three just to finish the series but it wasn't as good as the first two.

I now have read everything by this writer and he is outstanding. What is the most impressive is his story-telling & the ability to create life-like characters. Once you start one of his books you won't be able to put it down. He will create emotions within you like tears and smiles that you seldom experience when reading. I think the Beautiful Ugly Trilogy is his best and I can't wait to get my hands on his next book.
