"Junction, Utah" by Rebecca Lawton {Review & Giveaway}

Junction Utah

Book Description:

River guide Madeline Kruse has always preferred the nomadic life over a settled home. In early 2003, she's on the run from the long-standing pain of a missing father and critically ill mother trying to save the world. Madeline's wandering takes her to northeastern Utah, a corner of the West time has passed over, with its stunningly beautiful wilderness, rivers to run, and room to breathe. In the tiny town of Junction, she meets alfalfa farmer Chris Sorensen, whose family has split apart since September 11 and the enlistment of his brother in the U.S. Marines. Through Chris and a drama taking place deep in the Utah backcountry, Madeline learns that the pristine canyons she loves are being threatened, and she must overcome many obstacles if she is to find peace and her place by the river.

Rebecca pens "Junction Utah" in a original and gripping plot filled with emotions. Her characters were well developed, believable and real. This was one book that I had some trouble putting down as she had shown me Junction, Utah and it touched so many emotions within me. I highly recommend this book to all.

I give "Junction Utah" a 5 star rating.
