ABOUT THE RIVER BRIDE
Helena is dreading her sister’s wedding. The groom, Duarte, should have been hers. And she knows that her sister, Belmira, only wants to escape their quiet Brazilian town for an exciting new life in the city. But three days before the wedding, fishermen pull a mysterious stranger out of the river—a man with no past who offers both sisters an alluring, possibly dangerous future. Amazon folklore and lyric storytelling blend into a heartrending tale of love, grudges, transformation… and the ever-present river, giving and taking away.
