A haunting tale of loss and healing, Kimberly Brock’s debut novel, The River Witch, is ripe with talent, showing both depth of plot and characters. Roslyn is broken. A car crash ended her ballet career. A miscarriage ended the chance at a family she wasn’t certain she wanted, leaving her feeling alone and confused. Set on an island in Georgia, where Roslyn has gone to seclude herself from the world, Brock has managed to portray a diversity of Southern culture to a group of readers with no personal experience of it. The book is bold and rash while bringing mixed tears of joy and sadness. If this novel is an example, Brock’s career is very promising.
