Thank you for the wonderful review. I personally wasn't too sure about this book because of the way the cover looks and the title of the book (I know! NEVER judge a book by its cover, but I am so guilty of this!) and I honestly thought it was ALL about fishing. However, I think the fishing itself stands for something more in this book, as well as being used as a tool to bring all of these women together when they really need each other the most. It sounds like a sort of escape for these women and that along with the help from each other, the river seems to take their cares and problems away, even if it may only be for an instant; that's still an instant of peace.

I like the introduction to fly fishing from this wonderful group of friends and how they are able to save Melody from the river during one weekend. Nice review.

Your review is amazing, and it really sells the book. This seems like a book I would love. I also like the kind of books that provide information about a relatively unknown area and teach life lessons along with that.

Thank you for sharing your review with us. I was surprised to learn that the book is fiction. The first chapter really did lead me to believe that it was all about the sport of fly fishing. I will definitely give this book a second chance after reading your review.

The four women of diverse background pooled together to find strength from each other. Then one fateful day another woman was fished out of the river to add to the group. This tale of companionship and lasting friendship is really heartwarming in the face of instant friendship nowadays based on utility and not on pure feelings. Thanks to this fantastic review.

I'm not a fan of fly fishing, but character development sounds interesting. I admire the author's creativity in building five different personages - women with different backgrounds, who bound a friendship through a common sport. It is said that in this sports there are no race, age or nationality differences; you're only a fishman. Lovely review! Thank you!
