    1. Becca Lawton is my favorite kind of writer she uses beautiful language to tell a deeply important story, with a gripping plot This tale of two worlds meeting and clashing is timely on so many fronts environmental, political, and deeply personal, this story urges us to look deeply at our values and opinions about how we care for the world we live in, and the people we come into contact with, no matter how we feel about them Plus, you can t help but fall in love with Maddy and Chris, and root for [...]

    2. I loved this novel Each character as unlikely as they are to meet brings something to the table that I have not often seen in fiction From the soft spoken Mormon hay farmer to the emotionally damaged Iraq war vet to the Oregon earth child river guide to the Hmong Vietnam War bride who now bakes excellent apple pie each of these characters brings his her own real life to the story Every metaphor is rich and evocative Every emotion is nuanced, complicated and deeply felt The story and subplots are [...]

    4. There are things about Becca that draw me to her In reading her work, I think it s not only a certain understanding of life that comes with the age bracket in which we find ourselves, but the clear and evident signs of having been there many times over Our love for things environmentally sound is obviously a shared love, as well Becca is eloquent and shows beautiful grace as she tells us the story of the valley, the river and the inside, so to speak, of Maddy She has touched on so many things in [...]

    5. I wasn t truly prepared, to feel the chill of the mountain air, or the spray of the river from the rapids bounding boat, or the emotions of characters I liked and those I wouldn t have wanted to know But in the end, I felt it all Life, man, woman, and nature in the push pull, yin and yang of existence Vivid sights, sounds, smells, and characters in a very satisfying read.

    8. I received a copy of Junction, Utah in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion The author really was very descriptive in her developing of her characters Each character brought something very interesting and unique to the story The story was so involved with many different topics and direction the reader doesn t ever get a chance to get bored This is a book that was a page turner you were wanting to see what could possibly be next The description in the book entices the reader and gives them [...]

    9. So disappointed Not at all what I expected, or wanted, from this book.I thought this would discuss the differing viewpoints of ranchers and environmentalists for a class discussion It was a terrible failure My second reading in November showed me nothing else.

    10. I bought this because it was a Kindle deal, not out of familiarity with the author or subject It turned out to be a great book one that I stayed up half the night to finish Looking forward to reading of Rebecca Lawton s work.

    11. Rebecca Lawton s beautifully written novel, Junction Utah is a romance and adventure story that draws from the author s adventures as one of the first female river guides in the Grand Canyon From her beautiful imagery, Across the Green River, miles of high plateau stood at about my eye level That was the old floodplain, called the Bench by locals It had been cut by the river over time as a knife eases into cake that s still hot and rising Red, gray, and brown stone made up layers covered with a [...]

    12. I loved the scenes that were painted in this book It was so well described that I could visualize myself on the river, in the canyon, at the farm, everywhere the characters were There s a scene where a character falls into the river, and the visualization was so vivid that I realized I was holding my breath with them I get caught up emotionally in stories and share the characters feelings, but never have I gotten so caught up in the story that I had the same physical sensations as the characters [...]

    13. When I received my copy of this book, I have to be honest, I was a little skeptical about whether I was going to like it or not I was shocked that I actually did than like it, I LOVED IT The author did an amazing job of describing the characters and developing the storyline I felt like I was there and experiencing everything first hand The detail was unreal I could close my eyes and know exactly what the scenery and feel was of what the author was describing Every character had their own rhyme [...]

    14. A quick read Was attracted to the narrative about a Utah place and time Enjoyed the tale Lost points for nothing definitive.
