An Authors Collection Novel
“Flow is the difference between the way things are and the way they ought to be.” Jake did not understand the meaning of his grandfather’s words. It was easier to believe that the flow was not real.
The Rivers have a name for the mysterious presence that continually saves them from ruin. They call it the flow. Ten-year-old Jake Rivers is the only family member who has not experienced it, and fears he never will. On a dusty baseball diamond in the middle of a drought, the flow visits Jake, sending him on a quest to understand more than a young boy can.
As Jake searches, a succession of events pushes the family into a downward spiral of economic and emotional disaster. Jake fears that the flow may have turned against his family. An evangelical preacher, a woman who has lost an infant child, and a young boy who loves baseball but can’t play the game help Jake to find the secret of the flow.
