The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway
The River of No Return

HMS, April 26, 2013

This is the best novel I have read in years - a complete page turner. I was hooked from the second page. It's simultaneously thought-provoking and funny, fantastical and utterly real in surprising ways. It moved me and made me reflect on questions of time, love, and the future of humanity (yes, the future of humanity!). And all this in a wild genre bender focused on a 19th-century British nobleman/ladies' man. I'm still trying to decide who should play the hero in the movie version which is surely soon to follow. Bee Ridgeway has an utterly unique voice, and she blends genres (historical romance, fantasy, pomo novel) with the deftness and alacrity of a hip hop artist. Her writing is never heavy; reading the novel is like experiencing her joy of writing in one wild and exhilerating ride. To repeat: this novel rocks!
