Detailed item info

Synopsis
Oprah Book Club-« Selection, October 1999: Breena Clarke's first novel takes place in Georgetown in 1925, where a large and close-knit African American community took shape beneath the shadow of segregation. At the center of the story is baby Clara, who is swallowed by the Potomac as her sister, Johnnie Mae, cools off in the brackish water. It's the only place the girls can find relief--they're banned from the new, clean swimming pool the white kids use.After Clara drowns, the river is never the same, and Johnnie Mae hovers on the edge of womanhood wondering if she'll be able to get past her guilt and emptiness. In an eloquent passage, Clarke writes, "Losing a loved one, a family member, is like losing a tooth. After a while, those teeth remaining shift and lean and spread out to split the distance between themselves and the other teeth still left, trying to close up spaces."Bits of wisdom like this are the book's charm. Most remarkable are the church scenes, which Clarke renders almost purely in the give-and-take of voices: the booming preacher's sermon ("The people we love, we only borrowing them"), and the congregation's "Praise Jesus, Amen" exclamations. The author based her novel on stories passed down in Georgetown--tales of that area's first black churches, founded when people decided they wanted their own place of worship, and implicitly their own God. In church the novel takes flight. Elsewhere River, Cross My Heart suffers from clumsy, purple prose, and a plot that moves forward in labored fits and starts. Clarke painstakingly tries to re-create this past world, but sometimes it seems her duty to history is holding her back, bogging her down in period-piece details. In the effortless church scenes, history loses its gravity and is absorbed by grace. --Emily White

Industry reviews
"[A] warm, graceful first novel....Clarke...brings an affectionate eye and beautifully restrained prose to her fictional archaeology."
San Francisco Chronicle Book Review - John Perry (08/22/1999)

"Breena Clarke's first novel, RIVER, CROSS MY HEART, is a sweet read. Sweet like a glass of Southern iced tea on a hot day. Sweet like homemade ice cream from a hand-cranked machine, and just as rich....As historical fiction, the novel offers a slice of not-so-distant life, in danger of being forgotten. As a coming-of-age story, appropriate for adolescents as well as adults, it gives readers...a strong-willed, intelligent, young heroine."
Washington Post Book World - Holly Bass (08/29/1999)
