Nestled deep in Northwest Pennsylvania, in the thick forest of the Allegheny Mountains, is a quiet community named Kennerdell. Rich in both Native American and European settlement history with few inhabitants and a charming culture, growing up there was simple for Lena Woodruff.
But when grief stepped in and darkened her life-everything changed. After years of escape, Lena is forced to return home.
A web of mystery and danger that dates back to America’s earliest days quickly weaves around her and when a longtime friend, one who knows the tragedy that plagues Lena's heart, comes back into her life - things get complicated.
Grief darkens her thoughts while insecurity and self-doubt cause the lines between reality and imagination to blur. Just when she thinks she can't take anymore, a small glimmer of hope arises.
A sudden and unexpected need for love begins a conflict between self-doubt and the promise of something better.
Where strength can be weakness and vulnerability-an asset, the greatest danger that threatens Lena in Kennerdell may just be herself.
Will she be able to unfold the truth around this mystery or will it be easier to run away?
Love, danger, and history collide in Riverbend: The Collection
Andrea Goodson was born in 1982 and had a love of and fascination with writing since she was very young. Always imagining ways in which the world could be different, she began to write short stories when she was very young. It wasn't until many years later that she put pen to paper and began to work on what has become her first novel, Riverbend, part one in a trilogy. Upon completion of that work she found that writing was something she felt meant to do and would never be able to give up. Using her own experiences with hardship and tragedy Andrea uses her writing to reach others in an effort to show the world that we need not be victims of circumstance. Her main characters endure many conflicts yet find the courage and strength to better themselves.
"I like to think of myself as a pure lover of life, the happiness, joy, and surpises it brings, along with the pain, sadness, and sorrow. Not that anyone can really love sadness and sorrow, but without those components what would life really be? On top of my life lover personality, I am a flat out imagination fanatic! I can barely spend 10 minutes doing something or going somewhere without imagining how it could somehow be different, or better, or worse for that matter. Daydreaming is a regular hobby of mine and it is then when my ideas for writing come to me. I simply cannot just sit down and think of something to write. An idea strikes, unintentionally and uninvited, and it literally takes over me. I begin to write and cannot stop until I feel the idea has come to full fruition. Writing isn't the only place I do this either, it is present in nearly every aspect of my life. So, after spending years imagining, wishing, and wanting I finally decided to begin. So, here I am, at the beginning of my journey, I don't know how it ends anymore than you do, but if you are curious to find out you are invited to follow!
