Dungan's concise and descriptive language breathes life into her main character, Valentine Dalton. I keenly felt his love and passionate dedication toward his country, his wife, Hannah, and their children. Although this novel is considered a work of fiction, the author's portrayal of this man and his life made me feel that I was given a "true and accurate" glimpse into the heart and soul of this historical soldier and hero. It also shows the research that the author must have done to so clearly illustrate the period of time in which this story took place. I have enjoyed reading all of Marilyn Dungan's novels (The Laney McVey Series) and this book has piqued my interest so much that I would love to ask Ms. Dungan if she is going to make this into an historical fiction series. I sure hope so and I can't wait for her next publication!

Rebeccasreads highly recommends A RIVER AWAY as a lusty series of vignettes, with some luscious romance, & a passel of Revolutionary War stories from 1773 through 1807.
Telling the stories around the artifacts Marilyn Dungan unearthed, she breathes life back into a thrilling, frontier era. I do hope she acquires an audiobook version of A RIVER AWAY, because it will translate to the spoken word excellently.

I really enjoyed A River Away and read it in less than a day. I was really intrigued by author Marilyn Dungan's writing ability. I would recommend the book to readers that enjoy American history and adventure laced with a tender love story.
