Drama and romance await readers as author Samm E. Smith makes her debut in the publishing world with River Dancing. Bliss, passion, sorrow, and fear intertwine in this daring story of an unconventional love affair.

River Dancing introduces readers to Isabella Lillian McGregor, a very pleasant thirty-six-year-old woman with very attractive appearance. For so long, she has fought hard against her impulsiveness. Isabel surreptitiously wants for many things, impulsive things, things that could not fix her—only soothe her. Eventually, she would regain her sense of self-direction. But little does she know that finding herself would only be possible when Jo, a smart and compassionate woman, walks into her life. What begins as a casual friendship turns into a fiery yet tender love affair, as together, they face fate’s most bitter plans, including the death of a dear son. Along the way, their bond will be tested and society will have to witness how they defy the norms in the name of love.

A story of love, loss, and above all, choice, River Dancing depicts the tale of two women set upon life’s journey, and their struggles with the paths thrust before them. With its assemblage of unforgettable characters playing along an unpredictable storyline, it shows readers the proof that one’s will can orchestrate the avulsion of the river.
