Check Out My EXCLUSIVE AUTHOR INTERVIEW HERE!
A delightful memoir written by Alexander Watson, River Queens invites its readers to travel with Alexander, his partner Dale and their wonderful spotted dog, Dorothy Faye as the Texas trio renovate an old yacht and journey through the rivers of Midwest America. I always enjoys well-written memoirs and Watson's book does not disappoint. I also love a good love story - and River Queens is as much that, as it is a well-told memoir. The love story featured in the book is one that exists between Alexander and Dale as well as one that exists between the great number of river travelers throughout the American rivers. The way the river travelers interact, welcome one another and converse shows true connection, respect, as well as humor. Having spent much of my own youth growing up on the rivers of the Midwest, I appreciated this sentiment.
And of course, as an avid advocate of animals, I always love a well-told story that includes a much loved dog! And Dorothy Faye is the much-loved dog of Alexander and Dale in this book.
I also always enjoy books that remind us that connection, adventure, love, and genuine kindness are to be celebrated - and that they do, indeed exist. River Queens is an adventure story that reminds us of these important aspects of life and a book I enjoyed reading.
