DANIEL ARROYO has suffered a lifetime of guilt over the sudden death of his infant sister, who died when he was eight years old. He now lives his middle years between that guilt and worsening episodes of PTSD from a Vietnam he left thirty years ago. When a violent encounter on a dusty highway forces Daniel to face what haunts him, he finds himself pulled back to the neighborhood of his youth, where old houses hold tired secrets. What really happened on that steamy August afternoon? The answer comes spilling from the old neighborhood, and Daniel begins to find his way home. Corran Harrington takes the reader along the Rio Grande, from its headwaters to the sea.

Thoughts
This is a beautifully written book. The author writes in a way that is very soothing, even when writing about something that is very emotional. There was much more to this book than I originally thought there would be. I thought it would be mostly about his sister, but it was more a telling of his past. The book only takes a few hours to read but it’s packed full of many different stories, all very interesting. I loved this book and know it will stay with me for a very long time.
