A DEATH-DEFYING CONTEST FOR A LIFE-RESTORING FORMULA…
Far deeper than the story of a traditional healer and her feuding children’s search for her ‘life’ formula, Imminent River seamlessly melds a delectably gorgeous love story into a historical family saga, one reminiscent of Alex Haley’s R-o-o-t-s, but in which the search is in the opposite direction, for the ‘shoots’ rather than ‘roots’. This epic spans half a world – from the fetid swamps of West Africa, Europe and North America and Back. The result: an intricate build-up, a breath-taking denouement, a hair-raising resolution. If bookshelves were anthills, they’d rise in standing ovation.
