Publisher's Description

Julienne Ashby, 24, must change her pampered ways after her father, a prominent businessman in Natchez, Mississippi, loses their fortune and family home to a bad gambling habit in 1850. Like a fish out of water, she aims to refit their one remaining possession, an old riverboat, in hopes of making a profit and restoring the Cuvier name along the mighty Mississippi.

Desperate for help in doing the restoration work, prideful Julienne hires Dallas Bronte, a humiliated captain whose drinking problem stopped his water ways many years ago. Despite initial success, the struggles they will face with other ship owners are almost as challenging as the fiery feelings - of love and hate - that they must sort out for each other. When the riverboat and all aboard meet what looks like certain destruction, God shows Julienne and Dallas only one of those emotions is unsinkable.

Acclaim for The River Queen:

"I have read a lot of Gilbert Morris' books but I think this one is the best of them all."

-- My Favorite Things

Author Bio

Gilbert Morris is among today's most popular Christian writers and has sold millions of his books worldwide. He specializes in historical fiction and won a 2001 Christy Award for the Civil War drama Edge of Honor. Once a pastor and English professor who earned a Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas, Morris lives with his wife in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Publisher's Weekly

Prolific historical fiction writer Morris has sold more than seven million of his books since he began writing decades ago. Now he turns his pen to the 1850s world of Mississippi riverboats and the life of Julienne Ashby, Southern belle with a mind of her own. When her father dies and the family fortune is lost, Julienne must try to salvage some sort of life. Little does she know that she must put her trust in Dallas Bronte, a man from her past with a drinking problem. Together they rebuild the Natchez Queen, a wrecked riverboat and the only asset the family has. Can the two overcome their emotion-filled past? Can they save the family from destitution? While retailers may reap sales based on the Morris name, readers may face disappointment: shallow emotional depth, stilted dialogue and plot, and underdone characterization. Readers looking for an engrossing, forget-where-they-are tale won’t find it here. (Nov.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
