1940s Colorado- Teenage Victoria Nash is the sole surviving woman in a family of troubled men. She spends her days running the household on her family's peach farm.

Wilson Moon is a young drifter with a mysterious past. Displaced from his tribal land, he wants to believe one place is just like another.

When Victoria and Wil meet on a street corner, their unexpected connection ignites both passion and danger, revelations and secrets.

When tragedy strikes, Victoria is propelled away from the only home she has ever known and towards a reckoning with loss, hope, and her own untapped strength. Gathering all the pieces of her small and extraordinary existence, she will arrive at a single rocky decision that will change her life for ever.

Go as a River is a heart-wrenching coming-of-age story and a drama of enthralling power.
