Powell, Karen (Novelist)2021
Set in North Yorkshire in the 1950s, 'The River Within' is a piercingly evocative literary novel centred around the lives of two women. On a summer's day in 1955, in the village of Starome, the drowned body of young Danny Masters is discovered by three of his teenage friends: Alexander, the volatile heir to Richmond Hall, the country estate that neighbours Starome, and sister and brother, Lennie and Tom, whose father is land agent to the Richmond family. How did Danny Masters die? 'Child of nature' Lennie is in love with volatile Alexander, but is he in love with her or merely playing with her? Alexander's mother Venetia has been a widow for less than a year, and yet her husband's brother seems always to be by her side. In an interweaving narrative that moves across the months before and after Danny's death, village secrets gradually come to the surface.
