THE RIVER QUEEN by Gilbert Morris

This is the first of a series of three that are titled the “Water Wheel Series” by Gilbert Morris.  It is a Christian Historical Fiction.  I received this book from B&H Publishers to read and give an honest review. I really didn’t expect to like this book but was surprised to find it very interesting.  The book will be coming out November 15, 2011.

Julienne Ashby lived a very affluent life until her father died.  Her father’s banker had warned her father for years that the family needed to stop spending so much money but he didn’t have the heart to stop  them.  The Asby’s family thought everything was lost until Julienne discovered the deed to a river boat.  One that needed lots of repairs.  She hires Dallas Bronte to make the repairs on the boat while the family lives on it.  After lots of repair, they are able to  make money hauling merchandise, starting with smelly cattle.  But their dream is to make the boat into a luxury passenger boat.  They have one chance and that is by winning a race with the fastest boats on the river and using the prize money to finish refurbishing the boat.
