River guide Madeline Kruse has been on the run from a family secret most of her life, escaping on whitewater and into wilderness canyons. She’s as different from the alfalfa farmer she meets in Junction as big rapids are from a still pool. Or is she? Chris, alone on his Green River farm since his brother enlisted in the Marines and his family spun apart, has always been at home in the wild. When progress threatens both his farm and Maddie’s river, they can’t see past their differences to their shared passion for the backcountry. Will Maddie and Chris find their common ground in time to save the places they love?
