    I went back and forth the entire time I was reading this thick book. One minute, I was loving the perfect description of the grip the Wenatchee valley holds upon some of us who fall under its spell-- the next minute I was frowning at the very unbiblical worldview the author presents. She justifies feminism, infidelity, and commandment-breaking-- on the other hand, this book also extols the beauty of a wife, mother, and home-keeper so much that I flew about the house and had it spotless in fifteen minutes out of the glorious inspiration I found in these pages. I'd even compare it to the excellent book "Mother" in some ways. It's so beautiful.I'd buy this book, but I would not give it to my children until they were in their teens (late teens?) and mature enough to analyze the erroneous philosophy. But it's a book about My Hills. Oh, my beautiful hills.

    This is a 5-star book because it is about my hometown, Wenatchee, Washignton. My friend, Patti, gave me a copy last year to read, and I found McKay captured some of the feeling of the town squashed on the banks of the Columbia River. When I went home this summer, 2009, I found my mother, who moved to Wenatchee when she was about 34, had read the book when she was a junior in high school in Cairo, Illinois.

    This book is about Chris Hollowell, her family, and her community from 1900 through about 1920. The story takes place in apple country along the banks of the Columbia river in Washington state. The book was originally published in 1941. I found a copy at my local library. If you like books about early settlers and triumph over hardships give this book a try. They Came to a River is one of the best heartwarming stories I have read in quite awhile.

    What a delightful book - all 659 pages of it! This was written by a local author in 1946 of the settling of the Entiat WA valley. It also tells of the growing of apples and the growth of the railroad all rolled into a wonderful story that starts when Chris is 10 years old and ends when she finds love for a second time. I loved this book.

    My mom received this book from her Uncle Walter when she was 22, in 1941. I've loved it since first reading it when I was about 12. It takes place in Washington fruit country in the early 1900's and reflects the history I've been told. Yakima, WA, is my birthplace and the place I gravitate to for a sense of place. My mother die in Yakima December 7, 2015, and I'm reading it again now and thinking of her.

    I learned of this book in a comment on this post (http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/201...) and I am very surprised that no one ever recommended it before. The commenter described it as "about a young girl growing up on an apple farm in Washington state in the early 1900's" which is just the kind of book I was always reading (Evelyn Sibley Lampman, etc.) when I was a kid. I hope I can find a copy of They Came to a River.

    This book was written before I was born. I think I read it when I was in my 30s and it has stayed with me. Recently re-read it and enjoyed it just as much the second time. My guess is that it is biographical fiction. There is much to be said for being transported into an earlier time, a past that was peopled by our sturdy grandparents.
