“Deeply, bravely imagined, Corran Harrington’s radiant fiction records the ways in which our deepest loyalties and griefs spring from our first soil, brilliantly revealing the secret ways our lives touch each other without our knowing. Compassionate, luminous, wise, this is a book to savor and give to friends.”

“The beautifully intertwined stories in Corran Harrington’s Follow the River Home vividly evoke the ebb and flow of life in New Mexico. Harrington’s writing is thoughtful, fluid, keenly observant, and filled with voices that resonate beyond the page. I highly recommend this book.”
—MARY WOLF, owner of Collected Works bookstore, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Follow the River Home by Corran Harrington is a wonderfully written look at our roots, our fears, our guilt, and all of the moments that make up our lives.  The good, the bad, the happiest, and the saddest moments.  Harrington’s work is detailed and emotionally grounded, but she never shies away from the dark moments of war and death.” RATING: Quatrain: 4 stars

“This is a beautifully written book. The author writes in a way that is very soothing, even when writing about something that is very emotional. The book only takes a few hours to read but it’s packed full of many different stories, all very interesting. I loved this book and know it will stay with me for a very long time.”

“Gifted with a talent for writing, Corran Harrington takes the artist’s brush and using broad strokes of varying colors paints an exquisite picture of the life of one man. An enjoyable book and one so well-written you forget you are reading fiction.”

“Author Corran Harrington truly immerses you in the main character’s life and emotions. This is a unique book that will make you think. Hats off to Harrington, a female author, for telling this story from a male viewpoint. As I was reading the book I fully believed that Harrington was a male author—it wasn’t until after I finished and read more about the author that I learned differently. Not once did I suspect. Her male characters (all her characters) were very authentic.”

“Author Corran Harrington has taken a complex story, a cast of varied and also complex characters, and combined them to create an unforgettable book that will resonate with readers for a long while after the final page is turned.”

“Harrington’s lyrical prose draws a tapestry of images around the life of Daniel Arroyo. Her use of words is magical, and will make you love the English language. An innovative approach . . . I found it delightful.”

Follow the River Home is written by an uncommon author. Her prose has the cadence, beat, close emotion, and distant observation of the finest musical score. As with following a river, the journey is as important as the destination, and every word this author writes is a treasure along the way.”

“Corran Harrington is a master of word-painting as her canvas contracts and expands with imagery that is a balm for the soul.”

“She delves into the inner worlds of her characters with thick description of place through poetic imagery, and runs the gamut of literary convention with many points of view.”

“Beautifully written.”

“The quality of the writing sets this collection apart.”

“Elegantly written fiction.”

“So well-written you forget you are reading fiction.”

“It is my hope we will see more from Corran Harrington in the future.”

“What a beautiful book. Each character rang true, to my ear, to my heart.”
