Alison Reade abandons an academic career and flees to the Adirondacks to escape an obsessive boyfriend. She moves into her aunt’s cabin on an isolated stretch of the Hudson River. After taking a job as a whitewater-rafting guide, she starts to fall in love with her charismatic boss. Life is good–until she discovers that the Adirondacks are not the safe haven she thought they were.


  1. :

    “The River’s Tale” by Mike Virtanen is a thoroughly enjoyable, and relaxing
    summer novel. It flowed effortlessly and evoked memories of the cool water of Fourth
    Lake and the smell of pines in the Adirondacks when I was a kid. The attention to detail
    in the rafting scenes made the action real. Mike clearly is a gifted writer who knows
    how to entertain and keep his readers interested. Keep writing, Mike. I’m a huge
    fan.” — Virginia Hunt
