Read the River: An Novel.
A legendary river surges and twists through an ancient redwood forest. Villa Antonio is the mysterious estate guarding the river's entrance. It's curious that its cornerstone shows the year: 1532, and holds the same Celtic spiral design chiseled into an Irish tomb five thousand years ago. Three sages oversee the property: a child, her grandfather, and their timeless Chinese ancestor born over a century before. Legend says the river changes lives. To some, it brings healing, but to others it can transform into a formidable force that sweeps travelers into darkness and into a vast unknown.
