“The characters are so real; it was so easy to lose myself in the story completely”

MoonlightReader (Amazon Reviewer,  October 13, 2011)

“Hardwick’s ability to create community, her talent for drawing a clear picture of a down-and-almost-out small town, and her striking portrayal of complex and compelling Lee, make this novel a deep delight of joys and sorrows.”

Cindy Harrison (Amazon Reviewer,  November 7, 2011)

“Wonderful debut! Coming from the Pacific Northwest this book interested me from the beginning. However, I could NOT put it down. Lee Tucker is a well developed character and very likable.  This is a wonderful first book, I think we will come to love Ms Hardwick!”

From the reviewers:

Riversong is a remarkable debut novel for Tess Hardwick. This warm-hearted, compelling book is an enveloping saga of human resilience. Hardwick’s real achievement is her knack for storytelling – she has carved her story with vivid grace and crafted a superbly plotted, and compulsively readable tale that triumphs. In short, Riversong is an inspiration. Tess Hardwick is a delightful new voice in fiction – one that is well worth listening to. –Natalie

The story was simply engaging, creating a world in which I was able to delightfully lose myself. I found the storyline to be quite empowering and hopeful, as it encapsulated a world filled with struggles and redemption.–Teresa P. Miller

I usually read action/adventure stories so I thought this would be a genuine “chick” book. My initial reaction was a guy’s off-the cuff review that “it could have used some guns, a car chase, danger and sex…” Then I realized, it had each one of those! I was pleasantly surprised that it was well crafted and engaging. –John Murphy
