River Rising by Athol Dickson

River Rising is an intriguing novel about a different side of the slavery issue. The story is about a man who comes to a Southern town of split races. As soon as he arrives in town, he accidentally heals a woman who is about to have a breach birth. The baby is then born normally. Even though he tells everyone that he has no healing powers, no one believes him. He had originally come to the town because he found out he was born somewhere near the town.
The book gets a little boring near the middle, but you just have to bear with it until it gets to the interesting and surprising part.To say anymore would give away the unexpected ending.
The characters are well developed and the secret at the end of the book is well hidden. It's definitely worth reading but some could find it a bit boring.
3 stars
