Nestled deep in the thick forest of the Allegheny Mountains, is the quiet community of Kennerdell. Rich in history with few inhabitants and a charming culture, growing up there was simple for Lena Woodruff. But when her father died unexpectedly—everything changed.
After escaping the haunting memories of her past, Lena is forced to return home. What was supposed to be a short visit is hijacked when Lena uncovers a strange letter in her father’s study. The cryptic message brings everything Lena thinks she knows about her father and the history of their hometown into question. And when longtime friend, Will Sundback, comes into the picture –things get complicated.
As the two search for answers, they soon realize they aren’t alone. Someone is stalking Lena, mapping her every move. Anxiety and doubt consume her thoughts and just when she can’t take anymore, Lena is faced with a choice between the predictable life she had planned and the promise of something better.
Where strength can be weakness and vulnerability—an asset, the greatest danger that threatens Lena in Kennerdell may just be herself.
The River Beautiful brings history and legend together in a fast-paced story of loss, love, self-discovery, and finding faith even in the darkest places.
