Format: Paperback
Mike and Rhiannon has been best friends like forever. Mike is certain they are meant for each other but Rhiannon is not so sure. She loves him, sure, but not just the same way as he loves her. But sometimes being patient is better than rushing into things, and if Mike has something, it’s patience. He knows what he wants, and even if it seems impossible to have it, he does not stop loving Rhiannon.

River Dream is a beautiful story about first love and growing up. It’s warm and vividly written and reminded me of my own childhood. The ‘sweet tone’ in the writing pulled me in so strongly, I could easily imagine myself inside the story, sitting by the campfire and listening to the sounds of a warm summer night.

Very enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming of Age Story and more 2 Jan. 2014
By Sue J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rhiannon and Mike are best friends since tricycle days, only by age 13, Mike's sure he's in love......forever. Rhiannon says best friends are best friends....period. This sweet and thoughtful tale - from Mike's point of view - follows the pair and their friends from age 13 thru 18, along with all the trials, tribulations, and angst of all teens everywhere. The story, while a young adult novel, read quite well to this social security aged mom, and I never felt that I was reading a YA book. My only nitpick is the maturity level of the teens portrayed. Where were they when my son was growing up? Maybe it was his upbringing, along with his secret inheritance, but even at 13, Mike seemed far older emotionally than most of the 22-25 year olds I know. Eagerly looking forward to reading the next two books in the serial to see where adulthood takes the gang.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remembering the past 26 Aug. 2013
By Philip J. Nork - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story of Mike and Rhiannon is a sweet love story set in the 1970's. Growing up in that era I immediately connected with both of them.

Mike is a ninth grade boy in love with his best friend. They grew up together and are almost inseparable. The summers spent on the pier of the lake fishing together from sunup to sundown and the never ending games of pinball were things I could remember from my past also.

First love is a hard thing, especially when the other person can't love you the way you love them. Sometimes you don't know your best friend and sometimes they don't know themselves. Growing up is a time of exploration and learning. It is about being there for each other in the good and the bad times. And sometimes it is about giving into fate and destiny.

The underlying message of this fantastic book is that friendship trumps all. Love really does know best. Even if it doesn't happen exactly the way you expect, it will get you.

The camping, the boating, the characters and the growing up all involved engage in is a delightful way to spend an evening. I read this book in one sitting while listening to the rain hit my hotel window. The memories that came rushing back to me when I finished reading this were a welcome addition to that night. The adventures of Mike and Rhiannon mimicked parts of my youth so closely that sometimes I thought I was reading about my life.

Kudos to author D.W. Davis. I cannot wait to read his second book.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Take on Romance 27 July 2013
By AmberRose of PaganCenteredPodcast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed that this was written from the boy's perspective, as well as by a male author. It adds a lot of different elements that one doesn't often see in the more traditional romance stories.

An added bonus is the richness that is detailed in the surroundings. Set in the recent past, the setting is familiar to anyone who resides or vacations to Coastal North Carolina. Though the author litters descriptions of well-known locations, it is not so detail oriented that a reader unfamiliar with the area is lost.

While in my perfect world, the subject of alternative sexuality would not have ended the way it did, the tone of acceptance by the main characters is refreshing. It presents one of the gentler, non-sexualized, sides of very real interactions between friends that readers of all ages can appreciate.
5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Summer Read 6 July 2011
By carolinagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
River Dream is an awesome summer read! Its is a book perfect to read at the beach, on vacation or lazing at home. I loved the characters and the way Michael showed how he cares for his friends. It was easy to feel like you were at camp or on the beach. I also could feel Michael's emotions as the writer takes the reader through the high school years. It is a book I will read again and again.
