“The River Witch”

Bell Bridge Books, April 2012

Heavily influenced by Southern heritage, Kimberly Brock’s debut novel particularly contrasts the heritage of Appalachia with that of coastal Georgia in this tale of self-discovery. When physically and emotionally damaged ballet dancer Roslyn Byrne seeks shelter from her life on Manny’s Island, she unites with a quirky cast of characters who become intricately entwined in her healing process. Brock’s poetic prose and captivating tale make this a worthy read.
