Audiobook Feature: The River Witch

We’re delighted to announce that the audiobook for Kimberly Brock’s debut novel, THE RIVER WITCH, is now available. It’s no secret that we’re terribly fond of this novel (it was our June book club selection) and of Kimberly herself (she joined the She Reads family earlier this summer and overseas our blog network). Narrated by Allison Edwards and bringing to life the lyrical, Southern landscape that Kimberly so richly envisions, this is the perfect audiobook to add to your library.

We’re giving away a copy of THE RIVER WITCH audiobook today. If you’ve not had a chance to read this wonderful debut, now is your chance to hear it in all its glory. Just leave a comment on this post to be entered.

Can the river heal her?

Roslyn Byrne is twenty-four years old, broken in body, heart and soul. Her career as a professional ballet dancer ended with a car wreck and a miscarriage, leaving her lost and grieving. She needs a new path, but she doesn’t have the least idea how or where to start. With some shoving from her very Southern mama, she immures herself for the summer on  Manny’s Island, Georgia, one of the Sea Isles, to recover.

There Roslyn finds a ten-year-old girl, Damascus, who brings alligators, pumpkins and hoodoo into her sorry life.

Roslyn rents a house from Damascus’s family, the Trezevants, a strange bunch. One of the cousins, Nonnie, who works in the family’s market, sees things Roslyn is pretty sure she shouldn’t, and knows things regular people don’t. Between the Trezevant secrets and Damascus’s blatant snooping and meddling, Roslyn finds herself caught in a mysterious stew of the past and present, the music of the river, the dead and the dying who haunt the riverbank, and a passion for living her new life.

You can find the charming and lovely Kimberly Brock on Facebook and on Twitter.

    i am very interested in this book. unfortunately I am retired on a limited income and I can not afford every book I am interested in and I do live audio books especially when I go on trips.
