Injured and grieving, she returns home alone and conceives of a project of renewal. She will climb Mt. LeConte in the Smokies by way of the twelve streams that drain its slopes—a strenuous, dangerous activity. She makes her way up the streams without benefit of a trail, scrambling beside shining cascades. Her companions on the stream journeys are a trio of crass and funny hiking pals.

    Enjoyed the way the author weaved the current day, past, and the story in the book the main character reads. The characters never grabbed me and sucked me in though.

    This is a quietly beautiful story, very well told. I loved the combination of hiking, literature, personal goals, friendships and grief, experienced through the eyes of an authentic and original heroine.
