From the author of Home in the Morning comes this National Jewish Book Award Finalist: the sweeping story of a father and son, and of the loves that transform them amid the turbulence of the American South

Bernard Levy was always a mystery to the community of Guilford, Mississippi. He was even more of a mystery to his son, Mickey Moe, who was just four years old when his father died in World War II. Now it’s 1962 and Mickey Moe is a grown man, who must prove his pedigree to the disapproving parents of his girlfriend, Laura Anne Needleman, to win her hand in marriage. With only a few decades-old leads to go on, Mickey Moe sets out to uncover his father’s murky past, from his travels up and down the length of the Mississippi River to his heartrending adventures during the Great Flood of 1927. Mickey Moe’s journey, taken at the dawn of the civil rights era, leads him deep into the backwoods of Mississippi and Tennessee, where he meets with danger and unexpected revelations at every turn. As the greatest challenge of his life unfolds, he will finally discover the gripping details of his father’s life—one filled with loyalty, tragedy, and heroism in the face of great cruelty from man and nature alike.
 
A captivating follow-up to Mary Glickman’s bestselling Home in the Morning, One More River tells the epic tale of ordinary men caught in the grip of calamity, and inspired to extraordinary acts in the name of love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great novel 23 octobre 2011
Par Lakis Fourouklas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is one of those special novels that one should read slowly, little by little, in order to enjoy it. Its prose is so rich, so beautiful that it flows like a peaceful stream and not like the wild waters of the Mississippi on whose shores a big part of the action takes place. The author through her story travels the reader back to the past of the American South; a past that smells of death and of change; a past full of conflict and love; a past where racial discriminations were the canon and where dreams were not that easy to come true.
This is the story of a father and a son, Bernard and Mickey Moe Levy. Mickey is a young Jew who in 1962 meets and falls in love with a beautiful and brave girl that goes by the name of Laura Anne, whom he's determined to have as his wife. However, no matter what he, or she for that matter, wants their coming together is not a given, since Laura Anne's parents refuse to give her their blessing, because of the unknown origins of Mickey Moe's father. Bernard always was, to say the least, a mystery to the locals in Guilford, Mississippi. As the old-timers could recall, he arrived one day in town with pocketfuls of gold and decided to make a home there, but nobody, or almost nobody, had any clue as to where he came from and how he got his money, thus even after he was dead, the people never stopped throwing suspicious glances towards his household.
So, who was Bernard? Where did he start from and how did he end up there? How come he got to marry beautiful Beadie who was everything that he was not? And what was his real relationship with Bald Horace and his, virtually and visually, enormous sister, Aurora Mae? These are the questions that Mickey Moe needs to find answers to in order to solve his issues; however, to do that he has to put everything on hold for a while and travel far and away in order to trace his father's footsteps in history.
The author, through her oral and sing-song like narration, takes us back and forth in time and gives us the extraordinary yet simple stories of two men; that of Bernard, who left his home at the age of thirteen in order to seek his fortune elsewhere and his amazing journeys up and down the Mississippi, and that of Mickey Moe, a young man who's willing to anything he possibly can to marry the love of his life. Their travels seem to follow parallel roads, they even seem to converge every now and then, but at the end of the day they are different, since the one has spent a whole life trying to create his personal myth, while the other just struggles to earn the right to live his.
This is an outstanding novel that for some, not all that strange reason, reminds us of a lovely and somehow nostalgic blues song, and as such it deserves to be read -and yes, even be heard- by everyone who loves good literary fiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 There goes the weekend 14 novembre 2011
Par Leonard Chandler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I thought this one would be a nice Friday night start, to be continued in a day or two. Ha. I have to say I am enthralled by this writer and her sense of place and time. I am in Vietnam again, this time with Mickey Moe, and I can feel the heat of combat and the confusion that looms amid the chaos of a firefight that arises from nowhere. And I am in the old familiar South again, this time in the twenties, just trying to survive. An engaging second effort from a talented writer. And for this old timer, another weekend lost, but oh so highly recommended, this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One More River -Outstanding! 25 novembre 2011
Par Grandma Lisa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've just finished Mary Glickman's newest book, One More River. Glickman has done it again! Her characters are so real, and she brings you into their lives with a vivid evocation of the South as it was evolving through the 20th century. It is impressive how she manages to create dialect so convincing that you would swear she is from the South and not Boston born! Her story is a novel, a mystery, a family saga, and a tale that actually precedes that of the always fascinating Sassaports Mary introduced us to in Home in the Morning. My only regret is that the book ended. I wanted more!

This is one of those novels everyone must read. While it's based in history, it's way more than that. I was so touched by the characters and story line that I wished it did not have to end. I both cried and laughed while reading, which does not happen to me very often. It was just a terrific story that I loved, loved, loved. Thank you

Par susreef - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is another wonderful historic novel from author Mary Glickman. As I enjoyed reading her first book tremendously, I was thrilled to find the story taking off from 'Home in the Morning.' In 'One More River' the author narrates the quest of Mickey Moe Levy, a minor character in her previous novel, as he uncovers and copes with the difficulties of understanding the truth about his father. Engaging plot with superb character development. I loved it - better than her first!
