RASH, RONSAINTS AT THE RIVER St. Martin's Press 2005 0312424914 / 9780312424916 PAPERBACK . St. Martin's Press 7/1/2005. New paperback. Greenville's 2009 Amazing Read Selection. When a twelve-year-old girl drowns in the Tamassee River and her body is trapped in a deep eddy, the people of the small South Carolina town that bears the river's name are thrown into the national spotlight. The girl's parents want to attempt a rescue of the body; environmentalists are convinced the rescue operation will cause permanent damage to the river and set a dangerous precedent. Torn between the two sides is Maggie Glenn, a twenty-eight-year-old newspaper photographer who grew up in the town and has been sent to document the incident.

RASH, RONSERENA Ecco 2009 0061470848 / 9780061470844 PAPERBACK . Ecco 9/29/2009. New paperback. 2009 SIBA Fiction Award Winner. At the beginning of Serena, the year is 1929, and newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton travel from Boston to the North Carolina mountains where they plan to create a timber empire. 'As Serena came more alive to me as a character, I realized she was an anomaly in American literary fiction. While there have been many novels about women who have wielded great power within a family, how many have been about a woman who is a ‘captain of industry,’ especially in novels set in the past? This aspect of Serena made her even more intriguing to me. How would she assert herself, and prove herself, to the hundred men in her employment? How would the workers, and her husband, react to her strength and ambition? This, too, makes it a novel for our times.' -- Ron Rash.
