I loved reading In the Rivers’ Flow. The images are fresh and original, the language just right… a rare and beautifully written book.— Jane Roberts Wood, writing teacher and author of many books including Grace and Dance a Little Longer. Wood is a Fellow of both the National Endowment for the Humanities and National Endowment for the Arts.
A telling mark of any literature is the degree of retention it possesses… I will always wonder how Jake Rivers is doing… and I will never forget him. — Dr. Michael Johnson, award winning author of six books, national columnist, cowboy, and 2005 Oklahoma Author of the Year.

Reviews for In the Rivers’Flow
Jim Ainsworth has written a beautiful novel that is always engaging, never slows or falters. His voice is unsentimental and precise and his descriptive detail is an absolute feast. I was with the Rivers family from beginning to end. I won’t forget this novel or this family.--Suzanne Morris, author of Look Back with Longing, Keeping Secrets, Galveston, and Skychild
I loved all the characters, especially Jake. I carry him in my heart now, and I will never let him go. I am so glad I read this book.--Rosalie Oliver of the Roaring Red River Chapter of the Pulpwood Queens
I am so glad our book club chose your book. I fell in love with the characters. The baseball games were wondrous.--Pat Minter, New Boston, Texas
