Review: Follow the River

User Review  - Sydney - Goodreads

This book was awesome at first, and the writing style keeps you gripped to the story. My only problem, which is a HUGE problem, is that 95% of this book consists of them walking and talking about how ... Read full review

This was such a great story, but the writing was really disappointing. The descriptive passages went on and on, the dialogue was awkward, several of Mary Ingles's emotional reactions were head ... Read full review

User Review  - Whitney Bales - Goodreads

I loved the first half when she was interacting with her captors and showing incredible strength of character. The second half, when she was traveling home, challenged my suspension of disbelief. There were too many times when she should have just died. Read full review

User Review  - Anna Murdock - Goodreads

I didn't really know to rate this book. It is a true story, which made it interesting, and I didn't want to put it down because I wanted to find our what happens, but it was really gruesome, and awful at the same time.

User Review  - Carol - Goodreads

I had to read the author's note after the first 50 pages to see if I wanted to continue. The violence in the beginning is brutal. It's based on a true story and the fact that this woman walked over 600 miles in the fall and winter to get back to her husband is amazing. Read full review
