Publisher Description:
Experience the wonder of the river in this haunting debut novel, where family is lost, friends are found, and hope runs in the current.

One morning, River Rose Byrne wakes up talking like nobody else, and she doesn't know why. Maybe it's because her beloved older brother, Theron, has abruptly vanished. Maybe it's because that bully Daniel Bunch won't leave her alone. Or maybe it has everything to do with the eerily familiar house that her mind explores when she's asleep, and the mysterious woman who lives there.

River has to puzzle through these mysteries on her own until she makes a strange new friend named Meadow Lark. But when she brings Meadow Lark home and her mother reacts in a way that takes River by surprise, River is more lost than before. Now all that's left for her to do is make wish after wish--and keep her eyes open for a miracle.

Marilyn Hilton's haunting debut dives down deep into murky waters brimming with secrets, sorrow, and hope, giving us faith in the things that we seek, but haven't yet found.


Contributor Bio(s): Hilton, Marilyn: - Marilyn Hilton grew up in Massachusetts in a nest of family filled with a delightful abundance of cousins. From her father she learned to explore New England's back roads, and from her mother she learned to look beyond what can be seen. She has published numerous short stories, poems, and essays as well as a nonfiction book for tween girls. Found Things is her first novel. Marilyn now makes her home in Northern California with her husband and three children, where she writes, tap dances, and finds miracles on life's back roads.
