Review

“Delving into the complicated roles of siblings, parents, and neighbors, [Darcie] Chan gives each Mill River character a powerful role in refining and influencing these dynamics.”New York Journal of Books

This layered tale of two estranged sisters brought together by a mother’s love will make you laugh, cry, cheer, hug your loved ones a little tighter.

A bookstore, mothers, sisters, aunts, family secrets.

THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION is a wonderful, cozy, book that combines family, the love of books, and a small town and turns all of those into a book you won't want to stop reading.

Josie DiSantis had to move ​from New York ​back to her roots in Mill River, Vermont, after her husband was killed in a fire that destroyed their home. Luckily she and her daughters survived and had a loving aunt to take them in.

Mill River is a town that I would LOVE to live in. It seemed to be the perfect place to grow up, the perfect place to raise your children, and the perfect place to return to.

The only thing that wasn't perfect was the relationship between Josie's daughters, Rose and Emily. Something happened that tore their once close, sisterly relationship apart and had them estranged for years.

Josie tried to get them to reconcile all during her life and even after her death. Josie had devised a perfect plan described in her will that would hopefully bring the girls back together. Would this work? Nothing else had.

Josie was a strong character, Aunt Ivy was all the warmth anyone could ask for, and Rose and Emily were total opposites. Mill River and its residents knew everyone's business, but the town had the kindest folks ever.

I really enjoyed THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION because of the homey storyline and the beautifully described characters.

This is the first book I have read by Darcie Chan, and her writing style is inviting, descriptive, and simply superb.

I didn't want to stop reading because I wanted to see how the plan Josie devised was working out as well as wanting to be a part of that town with all those delightful residents.

A special thank you to Random House Publishing Group, Ballantine, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

"I fell in love with this story, the author, the town, and the characters!"

THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION, a beautiful and heartwarming novel, set in the quaint town of Mill River. A poignant story of a mother’s sacrifice to reconnect her two estranged daughters, (Emily and Rose), after a tragic accident.

If you read THE MILL RIVER RECLUSE, you will not want to miss, THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION!

WOW, I had no idea what was in store, when I requested to read THE MILL RIVER REDEMPTION via NetGalley! I was initially attracted to the inviting, yet mysterious front cover; however, what I discovered, when I began reading, was so much more, A Treasured Gem!

Due to a horrible tragedy, Josie, a single mom arrives in Vermont from New York, in the middle of the night with two daughters to care for. She has to start over, with the help and support of her Aunt Ivy (owner of the town’s bookstore—many lovely book titles and quotes mentioned which literary fans will adore), and this angel, Mary, who lived on the hill - secretly gave gifts even after her death with the help of Father O’Brien. Readers will learn more about Mary in the first book, THE MILL RIVER RECLUSE.

Josie works hard to rebuild her life from no possessions, to a successful Realtor/Broker in town, making a real home for herself and her two daughters. She never tells her young daughters the circumstances surrounding the death of their father, the tragedy and the FBI involvement, except the house fire, until readers learn more later in the book.

Darcie Chan has done it again and swept us up into the life of Mill River and made us care. We ache with them and laugh with them, but most of all, we care and it makes us feel good. The book can be read without having read the first book, although you shouldn't miss it, with some new characters and familiar ones. It explores the depths of families and what they mean. And, they don't just get wrapped up in sugar coating, feelings are raw and real and the members struggle with them. It also addresses how addictions can affect everyone around them. I'd say, get this book and prepare for a new experience and maybe you will find ways to help yourself in the process. As usual, I look forward to more books from Darcie Chan.

I've been eagerly awaiting this book and it was so worth the wait! These characters have stayed with me and it is just wonderful to visit with them again in Mill River. This remains a place of friendships, healing, and understanding that is quite unique and proves, without a doubt, that you can go home again. The author has done a great job in bringing these people to life; you will grieve, hurt, and smile right along with them. I hope there's another book in the works. This book is, to me, everything that I adore about reading. Pure magic! Highly recommend that you give this a try, you will fall in love with Darcie Chan!

The Mill River Recluse inspired my first (and still only) letter to an Author. Ms. Chan brought Mill River and it's inhabitants to life for me and I've been waiting to go back ever since.
The Mill River Redemption doesn't disappoint. New characters interact with familiar friends in an engaging story that , for the most part, occurs in the same time period as Recluse. I find myself caring about these folks and wanting to know where they go from here. There is even a twist that caught me by surprise and that doesn't happen too often.
I don't know if Ms. Chan plans to go back to Mill River in the future but if she does, I'll be talking the trip with her.
