"In some ways The River House reads like a suspense novel written by Richard Yates. Leroy elucidates Ginnie's moral conundrum beautifully." - Washington Post "Leroy expertly draws a picture of a woman and a family in crisis and the moral questions one sometimes has to face." - Toronto Sun "Margaret Leroy writes like a dream" - Tony Parsons"
