Floating down the Ohio River in 1778 with George Rogers Clark and his small army, Verity survives capture by Indians, the rigors of flatboat transportation, the unwanted attentions of an overbearing and crude fellow-traveler, and all the dangers of the wilderness travel.
To her unwelcome surprise, she finds herself responding to the combined patience and rough competence of the expedition's scout, Trey Owens. She's never known gentleness from a man, nor loyalty or honesty. Love is most definitely not in her plans. Can she--dare she--trust herself to a man who prizes his freedom above all things?

About The Author
LIKE A RIVER, MY LOVE is close to my heart because the setting is near my birthplace and hometown in southern Illinois. Sparta is where I began, at eight years old, to dream of publishing a book someday. Sparta is where the public librarian (Bess Brown, now deceased) and high school English teachers began encouraging me to put my ideas on paper. Sparta is where my grandmother, with only a 6th grade education, informed the family that I would one day write the books she never could. Sparta is where I began to write, first in my head and then with a pencil. I now write at a computer, with a loyal and supportive husband, two grown daughters, and a total of eight grandchildren cheering me on. Since my first memory, music and books have been my passion. Music is food for my soul and books are the stuff of which dreams are made. I am a great dreamer!
