Ms. Booth states that many of the events portrayed in the novel are true with names changed and facts rearranged, and begs local readers not to take offense. This adds a sense of mystery which may intrigue local readers. I feel this book will be a good read to anyone from coastal Carolina who wants insight into local life a century ago. Although my grandparents aren't from North Carolina, I enjoyed reading this historic novel of romance and coming-of-age. It took me back to a much simpler time and made it compellingly real.
But with Between the Rivers readers from the Tar Heel state can enjoy a great book that they can call their own. BTR is a little bit historical fiction, a little bit romance, a little bit socio-political--as protagonist Maggie Lorena struggles with the proper role of a woman in the early 20th century. It's a compelling, interesting look back at North Carolina and novelist Carolyn Booth has done an excellent job of capturing the era and essence of North Carolina in those days.
I, too, look forward to the sequel to Between the Rivers.
