“Crossroad? Jennifer, we’re river people. We have cross currents.”
At first Jenny was surprised, but then began laughing right down to her toes. She had tried to explain what she was feeling, but Megan probably understood before a word was spoken.
A recently divorced young lady moves to her grandparents’ cabin deep in the Smokey Mountains. While trying to comprehend and work through wrong choices, she is asked to help an old friend take some kids through paddling lessons. She confronts the multifaceted changes in her marital situation, old-fashioned beliefs, job, family, and spirituality; and she learns to appreciate the influence of her mother, friends, and a pastor who thinks the Bible is a road map. She confronts various beliefs, a joust on boats, a river rescue from paddling her kayak during a storm, and learns how to interpret a new romantic relationship.
