Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert
From the publisher:
Following in her estranged father's footsteps, Dr. Juliet Ryan has devoted her scientific acumen to corporate America, providing safe drinking water for millions--and affording her plenty of perks along the way. Then, without warning, a fast-moving disaster sweeps Juliet into a whirlpool of corporate scandal and puts lives at risk. As she scrambles to find answers, Juliet must face her deepest wounds and join forces with her father to expose a far-reaching conspiracy. Underneath it all, she struggles to forgive those who betrayed her trust--not least of all her own father.
Kellie Coates Gilbert writes a novel that will take readers into a world that they are probably not very familiar with. A world of water safety and regulations and corporate scandal. We take our safe drinking water for granted and in this novel author Gilbert will take readers into a world where they can appreciate all they have to eat and drink safely.
Dr. Juliet Ryan is a strong woman. The character is one of strength, but as the reader gets to know her you can see her vulnerability, especially in her relationships with others. This book has some intense scenes and past memories. While this is not a romantic book the stories lines of love and betrayal and forgiveness there. Those themes are in the parental relationships, friendships, and business relationships. Juliet must deal with grief past and present and she navigates the turbulent corporate scandal that is also destroying those she loves.
Readers who want a novel that will guide them into a corporate world and also a deal with the affects of parental relationships will enjoy this read.
I received this book free from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
