1 Clarke, Breena River, Cross My Heart
New York, NY, U.S.A. Little, Brown & Company 1999 0316144231 / 9780316144230 First Edition Soft cover Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) 
Uncorrected Advance Proof. Near Fine in cherry-red wraps, trade-sized (pb). There is a shallow crease in the upper corner of the front cover. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. An excellent copy of the author's first novel. ".A remarkable new writer makes her debut -- with a novel of tragedy and triumph in the life of an African American family in Georgetown, circa 1925. Six-year-old Clara Bynum is dead, drowned in the Potomoc River in the shadow of an apparently haunted rock outcropping known locally as the Three Sisters. In scenes alive with emotional truth, River, Cross My Heart weighs the effect of Clara's absence on the people she has left behind: her parents, Alice and Willie Bynum, torn between the old world of their rural North Carolina home and the new world of the city, to which they have moved in search of a better life for themselves and their children; the friends and relatives of the Bynum family in the Georgetown neighborhood they now call home; and, most especially, Clara's sister, twelve-year-old Johnnie Mae, who must come to terms with the powerful and confused emotions sparked by her sister's death as she struggles to decide and discover the kind of woman she will become."
