Michael Neale in his new book, “Into The Canyon book coverInto The Canyon” Book Two in The River series published by Thomas Nelson gives us another adventure with Gabriel Clarke.

From the back cover:  Some stories take generations to unfold.

Gabriel Clarke has The River in his blood: The River that he loved as a child. The River that took his father, John. The River he feared, fled . . . and has come back to now.

Jacob Fielding owes the last twenty years of his life to John Clarke—the stranger who drowned saving him and his brother from their own boyish recklessness. Since that day, Jacob’s gratitude has extended to everyone around him . . . especially Gabriel, that brave man’s son.

But while the death of John Clarke became a powerful force for good in Jacob, it has been an unshakable source of darkness in another man. When gratitude and guilt meet at the River, two decades after that fateful day, Gabriel finds himself face-to-face with a stark choice for his own future: anger or forgiveness, hatred or love, death or life.

So much more than an allegory, Into the Canyon will inspire you to love deeply, forgive extravagantly, and live large.

The River itself is just a river starts at the beginning and travels to the sea so it is not the problem. The problem is the events that occur on The River. Not all the trauma that we were exposed to was dealt with in the first book, there was healing, yes, but not complete. Now we are being given closure. “Into The Canyon” is a marvelous read full of atmosphere and details.  “Into The Canyon” is about friendship.  It is about honesty, rebuilding your life and moving forward in a new direction.  It is about trusting God and learning to lean on Him for His guidance and direction.  Mr. Neale knows how to tell a story that is both interesting and thought-provoking and I recommend it highly.
