Grand Ambition

by Lisa Michaels

A beautiful narrative that switches effortlessly between characters and their pasts. All is revealed as you hurtle down the rapids.


... I had a feeling they got separated from the boat. It was a scene I had already imagined in great detail. 'They're lining a rapid and the boat gets away from them, and now they're stuck on some beach, running out of food. You met my daughter-in-law, Mr. Klob. If Glen lost his grip even for a minute, there's no way that Bessie could hold a scow alone.'
