The River and the Ravages by J.M. Lawler #Review

‘Written in very clear and beautiful prose, JM Lawler’s novel is both inspiring and entertaining. This is one of the finest books I have read on women’s issues, a book with characters that are real.’
READERS’ FAVORITE

When do you risk everything for love?

Aaliya Reiner is made of strong stuff. But when her mother passes on, she seems to lose her grip on life. Things don’t seem to get better with her sister, Maddalena, who’s estranged and enjoying the benefits that come in a marriage of power and opulence.

Aaliya takes refuge in a passionate and hidden love affair, hoping to fill the void left by her mother’s death.

But desire can be deadly and the kingdom of Traegos is becoming a dangerous place. When the dark storm of politics and power begins to blow, choice and chance collide leaving Aaliya with only one option left to survive.

The River and the Ravages is a gripping story of identity and freedom: who we are seen to be versus who we believe ourselves to be, and the ways in which we will risk everything for love.

For mature readers only.

The River and the Ravages is a story about Aaliya and her sister Maddalena. The story starts out with Aaliya attending her mother’s funeral. It shows that while Aaliya is grieving, her father and older sister do not seem to really care much at all, except how it looks to others. Aaliya is relieving how she loved going out with her mother, until her father through her older sister Maddalena put a stop to it as if it was very humiliating for them to walk and identify plants and gather food. Maddalena is a widow now and enjoying lovers and trying to learn about business in a society that sees her as a secretary at best.

This story is good. The characters develop fast and draw the reader right in. The way things start it just grabs the reader and keeps you wanting to read more and not put it down. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys some political intrigue with their romance. Warning this is for mature readers with sexual situations.
