It's a beautiful story and I'm sure you'll find it enlightening as well as thought-provoking.
Irrespective of which book you start with you will end up reading all of Charles Martins books. They are simply that good. "Where a River Ends" is a heartbreaking love story that takes place in a canoe on a river that borders Georgia and Florida. The main characters are a river guide/artist and an intelligent well bread Charleston woman.
This book, as with all of Martins titles, has a great story line, fascinating characters and descriptions of a wild and beautiful landscape. But best of all is the writing. Martin takes a complex novel and presents it the simplest and sweetest language. It is this more than anything that sets his books apart from most mainstream southern authors.
True, one of the main characters, Abbie, is dying and her husband, Doss, does take her on a journey down the river but the author makes it so interesting that the book doesn't feel like a drag at all. Charles Martin cleverly alternates between the past and the present as only he can do and creates a story so beautiful and touching that will make even the hardest of hearts cry. Abbie's strength and Doss's love for her are remarkable and yet not so remarkable so that they would appear unbelievable.
I greatly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good cry.
