“Kimberly Brock’s The River Witch achieves what splendid writing ought to achieve – story and character that linger in the reader’s consciousness. Tender and intriguing, often dazzling in its prose, this is a mature work of fiction worthy of the celebration of praise.”
~Terry Kay, internationally known author of the classic novel To Dance With the White Dog

“With lyrical prose, Kimberly Brock explores the hidden places of the heart. The River Witch is a magical and bewitching story that, like a river, winds its way through the soul. In the voices of her wounded characters, Brock takes us through both the breaking and the healing of a life.”
~Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Driftwood Summer

“There is magic and wonder in The River Witch, but the real enchantment here is the strength of the characters Roslyn and Damascus. Their voices are the current that carries the reader along in this compelling tale of healing and discovery.”- Sharyn McCrumb, New York Times Bestselling Author, The Ballad of Tom Dooley

“I recently read The River Witch and I was struck by the complexity of the characters, by the way I was pulled into their thoughts and their respective quagmires, by the way I pulled for each of them to find a way out. I kept the book on the floor beside my bed and read a chapter every morning before I got up – it was a perfect way to start the day! Brock’s prose are beautiful, her description compelling, the weaving of the mystical with solid plot lines seamless. Remarks made in the book are more than down-home southern truisms; they are commentaries on the human condition that instill a spark of light, a drop or two of hope not only in the characters, but in readers as well.” ~Susan Crawford, author of The Pocket Wife
