Where Rivers Meet by P.J. Roscoe is a tale filled with magical realism and characters that are exceptional and memorable. Abigail Lloyd is returning to the Welsh village where she spent many happy childhood years with her beloved Nan, and she does so with the hope of reconnecting with the joy and happiness she once experienced as a child. But what she finds are secrets about her childhood that make her question everything she ever knew. She is about to set out on a path she never thought of and find a destiny far different from anything she ever dreamed about. Cain’s world isn’t one for weak people and he knows that the woman he’s grown up secretly loving might not fit into it. But he has these weird glimpses into another life that connects him to her. Will he take the bold step and dare to go after her?

A gorgeous treat for fans of paranormal romance, Where Rivers Meet is evocative of Welsh culture, filled with words picked from the dialect and images that allow readers to visualize the geography, the locales, and the exotic places in which the story takes place. The beauty of the descriptive prose caught my attention right off the bat, with images like these: “The sun had left its warmth on the day. A slither of golden light streamed along the line of slate roofs while the rest of the small cottages lay in semidarkness within the shadow of the mountain. The pubs were busy with people laughing and smoking both inside and out.” Abigail is a gifted artist and the portrait of her soul is so beautifully done that it feels like a reflection of the world she inhabits. P.J. Roscoe is a writer who seems to write from the heart, exploring strong emotions in the characters and helping readers connect with exciting worlds. Themes of family, romance, and the quest for meaning in a world filled with mystery are beautifully developed in this spellbinding narrative.
