River, Cross My HeartLarge Print - 2000
These are the absolute best of our bestselling hardcover titles -- published in paperback eight to twelve months after our hardcover publication date. Ideal for outreach and nursing home programs.Six-year-old Clara Bynum is dead, drowned in the Potomac River in the shadow of an apparently haunted rock outcropping known locally as the Three Sisters. In scenes alive with emotional truth, the story weighs the effect of Clara's absence on the people she has left behind: her parents; the family's friends and relatives in their Georgetown neighborhood; and, most especially, Clara's twelve-year-old sister Johnnie Mae, who must come to terms with her sister's death as she struggles to discover the kind of woman she will become.
