Read » To the River Losing My Brother 109 Read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ì Don Gillmor characters To the River Losing My Brother Ious December David's family his second wife and his friends had different theories about his disappearance Some thought David had run away; some thought he'd met with foul play; but most believed that David a talented musician who at the age of 48 was about to give up the night life for a day job had intentionally walked into the water Just as Don was about to paddle the river looking for traces David's body was found six months after he'd gone into the river And Don's canoe trip turned into an act of remembrance and mourning. To the River is at once a prodigious feat of remembrance an intensely personal expression of love and sorrow and a level headed exploration of a deeply rooted social problem The tone is appropriately mournful overall but manages to be funny in places too and that s a magical feat in itself I read it in about two sittings and will probably read it again before long drawn back for the description and the writing The writing is sublime
