The River House

by Margaret Leroy

The River House Synopsis

With you I'm in a different world, what happens in our world can't harm anyone else... Ginnie Holmes has found something she never intended to find - an overwhelming passion for a man she should not be with. At an abandoned boathouse hidden on the riverbank of the Thames, Ginnie steps into a world that's just a little bit brighter that her ordinary life. An escape from the crush of an empty marriage and a drifting life. A terrifying event means the lovers' secret becomes a deadly catastrophe. A woman is found murdered at the river's edge, just near the river house. And Ginnie finds herself in the path of extraordinary danger, not only facing the exposure and grief that she has feared, but endangering herself and everyone she loves. Margaret Leroy writes like a dream Tony Parsons

The River House Press Reviews

In some ways The River House reads like a suspense novel written by Richard Yates. Leroy elucidates Ginnie's moral conundrum beautifully. - Washington Post Leroy expertly draws a picture of a woman and a family in crisis and the moral questions one sometimes has to face. - Toronto Sun Margaret Leroy writes like a dream - Tony Parsons
