The Mill River Redemption

New from the New York Times best selling author Darcie Chan...

Josie DiSanti is starting over. Recently widowed, she has fled her New York City home with her two young daughters—spirited Rose and shy Emily—in tow. She takes refuge in Mill River, Vermont, to live with her only remaining relative, Ivy Collard, the local bookstore owner and a woman Josie barely knows. There, the young mother and her girls build a new life for themselves—until a shocking tragedy tears the sisters apart.
Years later, Josie’s still-estranged daughters return to the quiet town for the reading of their mother’s will, which stipulates that they must work together to locate a hidden key to a safe-deposit box containing their inheritance. Even from the great beyond, it seems Josie will do anything to bring about her daughters’ reconciliation. Having no choice but to go along with their mother’s final wishes, Rose and Emily move back to Mill River for the summer to begin the search—discovering that, in the close-knit community known for magic and miracles, an even greater treasure awaits them.
About the Author: Darcie Chan is the New York Times bestselling author of the eBook sensation The Mill River Recluse and the novel The Mill River Redemption. She has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. For fourteen years, Chan worked as an attorney drafting environmental and natural resource legislation for the U.S. Senate. She now writes fiction full-time and lives north of New York City with her husband and son.
Samie's Review: I didn't know what to expect when I started to read The Mill River Redemption - the cover is eye catching and the blurb was captivating, but nothing could have prepared me for how great it was going to be! Filled with flawed, complex but realistic characters suffering through circumstances which can either bring out the best within them, the plot takes you on a heart warming journey which leaves you wanting to read more. I love the references to The Mill River Recluse (Darcie Chan's first book) and I really hope that there is much more to come in this series set in the quaint, but highly eventful town!
