Heavy rain. Impassable roads. Flooding up stream. Most in town have fled the wild river. Five remain. Why does the owner of the rundown hostelry swear no damn river will run her off? Why does she put others at risk? And why has the Reverend forsaken an affluent congregation in the East to return to this backwater? This prize winning mystery drama explores the lives of five intriguing characters with eloquence and humor.
