A humorous, gritty and lush journey down a Michigan river.

After her father’s murder by a relative, Margo needs to leave the only home she knows. This beautiful gun toting, sharpshooter of a teen takes her grandfather’s canoe, the River Rose, and begins a journey into rural Michigan in search of a true home, love and safety. Meeting a cast of characters in various episodes along the way, Margo proves she is no wilting violet. The lyrical descriptions of the river and natural environment are memorable.
