|A STORY OF COURAGE AND GRIT ~ WITH A TWIST|
Between Two Rivers is an adventure story. After an unspecified disaster devastates the coastal plain, a group bands together to make the arduous westward trek to food, freedom, peace and security. It is a story of courage and resourcefulness. Follow them
as their individual faults and virtues weld a cohesive group that sees them through natural catastrophes, enemies and their own errors in judgment. Weep with their tragedies and celebrate their victories. Enjoy them as they are and don't try to read too
much into it. The surprise ending will bring a smile to your face.
The iUniverse publishing staff called it "A story for our time. A tale of courage and grit. With a twist!" While no specific era is alluded to in the book, in terms of courage and grit, inter and intra-relationships, perhaps it is just that. It is a rousing adventure and a downright good story.

Reviewer: G. Michael Horne from Scotland, MD USA (by permission)
Between Two Rivers joins the reader with a group making its way through wild, dangerous territory. Their goal - a place of peace and happiness. Mr. Joseph deftly blends the essentials of a true "page-turner". The well-paced narrative makes this book difficult to put down once started. Struggles to survive against villains and nature, friendship and personal sacrifice, honor and heroism, humor and sadness, adventure and surprises - all abound. And, a touch of romance. The characters, good and evil, are developed in sufficient detail to make them quite interesting as individuals. Descriptions of the physical surroundings absorb the reader into the scene. Although fiction, the characters, events, and the surroundings are realistically portrayed and the reader quickly comes to believe this could be a true story. I highly recommend Between Two Rivers to all who enjoy well-written, attention-grabbing novels with real bite! I look forward to Mr. Joseph's next offering with great anticipation!
