Resumen:

In the River Sweet : At mid-life, Ruth Anne Bond is still passionately in love with her husband, Johnny, deeply involved in her church, and close to her daughter, Laurel. But one day she receives a message that threatens the foundations of her marriage - a message she has craved and dreaded for thirty years: "Dear Mrs. Ruth Anne, I believe you are my mother." What emerges is a secret dating back to 1968, when nineteen-year old Ruth Anne was a volunteer in a French convent in Saigon and where, at Tet, the celebratory pop of firecrackers gave way to the sound of gunfire. As Ruth Anne struggles to come to terms with her past - and Johnny grapples with his own memories of the war - Patricia Henley crafts a sensitive and beautifully written meditation on family and faith, and what it means to be moral in a world of conflicting moral codes.
