Boston cardiac surgeon Heather Preston has invested everything to achieve her dream of working at a world renowned hospital. When an unsettling call from her grandfather the retired general brings her back to her childhood lakeside home, she rediscovers the appeal of life in a small town, the joys of free-spirited youth—and Jake Harper.
Set in rural Appalachia, “River Rocks” is a riveting coming of age tale of two boys, their friends, and a one-hundred-year-old local legend of Confederate gold buried somewhere in the hills that surround their home. The gold was the result of an unsolved 1903 train robbery mystery, which liberated the U.S. government of their prized “Southern Jewel”. The old legend takes on a new life as Josh Baker and Eddie Debord discover the illusive clue that begins to lead them on the adventure of a lifetime! In their quest, the boys find themselves drifting downriver on a homemade raft, biking down old railroad beds, hiking hills, exploring hidden and forbidden hollows, and attempting to locate key old-timers who can help them put this puzzle together.
