"I tore through the pages, compelled by the intrigue of the mysterious disappearance and the beautifully paced revelations of Kate's family secrets. An honest, compassionate portrayal of touchingly real characters and their familial relationships; the mistakes made, the regrets, the falling out, the falling apart, the forgiveness and the love." Jane Elmor, author of My Vintage Summer
"An emotionally powerful story of the impact of secrets and lies on the lives of three generations of women - a deeply satisfying and moving book, and a wonderful debut!" Sophie Duffy, author of Bright Stars

"Amanda Saint's debut novel is a juicy Pandora's Box of mysteries and revelations." Alison Moore, Man-Booker Prize-shortlisted author of The Lighthouse
"It is rare that I find a book outside of the thriller genre so compulsively addictive, but As If I Were a River was so beautifully written that I found it virtually impossible to put down. An absolutely outstanding debut, written so beautifully that I couldn’t help but form an immensely strong emotional link to the characters as their journey unfolded. As If I Were A River is something so completely out of the ordinary that it warrants every single one of the five stars that I have awarded it." Michelle Ryles, The Book Magnet Blog
