Volume 1, Ripples
Rozene and Mike Carson have legally adopted four foster care teenage daughters, giving them a forever family they’d never known before. But after only a year with the Carson’s, one by one, Veronica, Shira, Melanie, and Misty reach adulthood, venturing out to start new lives of their own, leaving the house along the banks of the Sweetwater River in Sweetland.
Rozene is proud of the adults they are becoming, but also heartbroken as she and Mike face an empty nest. She soon will see just how deep the girls’ roots are to their riverside home. In the Sweetwater River series, these six lives continue to connect in some unexpected ways.
In Volume 1, Rozene sheds past burdens while the same types of burdens threaten Mike. Shira’s study of music takes an unexpected turn. And we meet Trent, New Becton’s veterinarian whose interests include Veronica.
