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.Read more ›
"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.Read more ›
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.

I was fascinated by the development of the main characters as they aged and deepened. I also loved the message that sometimes the deepest generosity can be quiet and unobtrusive.Published 2 months ago by Linda Prince Jones
