The Yangtze in this story is not China's biggest waterway, but a rather magical place on the outskirts of a small town in the backwoods of Quebec, Canada. With a few quick brush strokes, Karen Wallace transports the listener to a time and a place where children enjoyed a freedom that is impossible to imagine today. The plot moves along quickly, its profound observations and simple truths skillfully unveiled through vivid and authentic dialogue. It's the story of a summer when old dreams are shattered and new dreams are born. For Nancy and her friends, things will never be the same.
