More often than not, even your best casts fail. Sometimes not catching a fish is fine. Other times, one fish caught after a duel of wits and skill is more satisfying than reeling in dozens. Other times, one fish caught after a duel of wits and skill is more satisfying than reeling in dozens d, the quality of the experience matters far more than the quantity of fish caught. Mia stood on the front porch of the cabin with a mug of coffee in one hand and a brush in the other as she stared out at the early morning sun rising over the eastern ridge of mountains.

With a strong, warm voice that brings the South to life, New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe writes richly textured stories that intimately portray the complex and emotional relationships we share with families, friends, and the natural world. "Every book that Mary Alice Monroe has written has felt like a homecoming to me," writes Pat Conroy, bestselling author of The Prince of Tides. Time Is a River is an insightful novel that will sweep readers away to the seductive southern landscape, joining books by authors such as Anne Rivers Siddons and Sue Monk Kidd. Recovering from breast cancer and reeling from her husband's infidelity, Mia Landan flees her Charleston home to heal in the mountains near Asheville, North Carolina. She seeks refuge in a neglected fishing cabin belonging to her fly-fishing instructor, Belle Carson. Belle recently inherited the cabin, which once belonged to a grandmother she never knew -- the legendary fly fisher and journalist of the 1920s, Kate Watkins, whose life fell into ruins after she was accused of murdering her lover. Her fortune lost in the stock market crash and her reputation destroyed, Kate slipped into seclusion in the remote cabin. After her death the fishing cabin remained locked and abandoned for decades. Little does Belle know that by opening the cabin doors to Mia for a summer's sanctuary, she will open again the scandal that plagued Belle's family for generations. From her first step inside the dusty cabin, Mia is fascinated by the traces of Kate's mysterious story left behind in the eccentric furnishings of the cabin. And though Belle, ashamed of the tabloid scandal that tortured her mother, warns Mia not to stir the mud, Mia is compelled to find out more about Kate...especially when she discovers Kate's journal. The inspiring words of the remarkable woman echo across the years. Mia has been learning to fly-fish, and Kate's wise words comparing life to a river resonate deeply. She begins a quest to uncover the truth behind the lies. As she searches newspaper archives and listens to the colorful memories of the local small-town residents, the story of a proud, fiercely independent woman emerges. Mia feels a strange kinship with the woman who, like her, suffered fears, betrayal, the death of loved ones, and a fall from grace -- yet found strength, compassion and, ultimately, forgiveness in her isolation. A story timeless in its appeal emerges, with a power that reopens old wounds, but also brings a transforming healing for Mia, for Kate's descendants, and for all those in Mia's new community.

This book was recommended for me as an interesting novel that deals with family history. When it arrived in the mail, I eagerly read the back cover. My first thought was that it was another "feel good" book, the kind that has sweetness and light shining on every page. Not that would be a bad thing, just not my usual cup of tea.

It starts with Mia Landan, a breast cancer survivor, finding that her husband was unfaithful to her. Torn on many different levels, she runs back to the last place she felt some peace, a breast cancer survivor retreat. The owner of the retreat, Belle Carson , realizes that Mia needs to find herself, needs some time to sort out her life and become whole again. She offers Mia the use of a disused fishing cabin that she had inherited . Mia quickly finds that the cabin holds secrets that have caused family discord for decades....and she becomes obsessed with reuniting Belle and her long dead Grandmother, while carving out a new life of her own.

I found myself totally absorbed in the book after the first chapter. It turned out to be so much more than a "feel good" book, including a great mystery, well written characters, and a very real sense of a family torn apart by innuendos and rumors. There were some aspects that I felt were overdone, including fly fishing, of all things. A few of the occurrences seemed contrived, and the ending was too predictable, in my opinion. Regardless I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.
Note: Some hints of sex, nothing bold....no bad language...no violence….good writing with well developed characters…

From my perspective, this novel had everything! Beautiful descriptions of the Carolina mountains and Charleston, pain and heartache, romance and reconciliation, mystery and history, and best of all an awakening of self identity and peace with self. I really enjoy everything I've read so far by Mary Alice Monroe (6 books) and keep going back for more. She understands human nature and its complications in amazing ways, making her characters multi-faceted. There is usually something in all of them, I can identify with. This novel explored the trout streams of the mountains, the natural surroundings, the joy of fly-fishing so expertly, it made me want to visit and learn more about fishing! (and I don't even like fishing!) I have felt the same way about each or her "low country" novels as well. It is obvious in each of them, she has researched the natural aspects she descries whether sea turtles, dolphins, trout, hurricanes, beach and mountain living and the history of the area. Love it!

This was a fantastic read. I was unaware of great development the story would hold. To escape for a retreat to take a break from hurtful decisions, was an extraordinary adventure. This story has mystery, love, heartbreak, uncertainty, fear, and compassion. You will hold your breath hoping the character does the right thing, or has the right encounter. I was especially in reading about the fly fishing, after reading Hemingway also had a passion. Women as strong characters are a blessing. Realizing the ancestors of our past were stronger women, is magic. I loved this story line, the interesting characters and all the developments along the way. I couldn't put the book down. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading another title from the author.

So interesting and so real. Thanks Mary Alice for your wonderful writing! I love the way you think and describe, "The air smelled of ripeness and rot, sweet and pungent, that made her think of pumpkins. Resident birds flitted in a thicket of wild mt Laurel ~~".
I've noticed in all the books of yours I've read, the way you describe things, it's so fulfilling to read! Usually, with an author, this tends to make me fast fwd, not with yours.
I love the way each of your books has a theme. I've actually learned a lot about fly fishing from this book, and from others, about Dolphins and turtles.
It makes me feel Sooo good to know, I still have more of your books to read!
Thank you!

I think every woman that enjoys reading should definitely make this book a
priority on her list. I actually felt I was in the mountains of western NC inside the cabin that Mia was able to reunite with her inner self.
I dearly loved the Watkins history and women fly fishing for trout in the mountain
river stream and best of all after the catch
make sure you return the fish to the river and let them live.
Mary Alice Monroe congratulations on a fabulous book.

I do not usually gush over any book no matter how wonderfully written or how wonderful the author does their job.
This book, however, was a total surprise as I had purchased it for a "summer read" to get away from the heavy reading
my book club does during the year. This story had everything it needed and then some! The author managed to have an important
story for those who have been through breast cancer weaved through a story of marriage disappointments, family devotion,
new love, the love of nature, AND. . .another story unto itself about a woman from long ago and her love of fly fishing, along with intrigue
and setting the untold story straight. I do believe it was one of the best books I have ever read, and if you know someone who has
been through the trauma of breast cancer, based on that alone it would be worth reading and recommending. Great job, M.A. Monroe!!
