River Rising by John A. Heldt is an engaging sci-fi historical book that'll take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride.
I've always loved author Heldt's books because of the beautiful storylines and his exceptional storytelling skills, and this book is no different and had the same charm that I find nothing short of magic. In fact, this book was all this and so much more; it had elements of mystery and something very different from the author's previous books - this book is a series based around the same family. This made me look at the characters, the main ones as well as the secondary ones, in a very different light.
Overall it was a very good read and I enjoyed every aspect of it. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, science-fiction - time travel, simple romance, family drama and easy mystery.
