In the Heart of the Canyon
Here's the first book I've really enjoyed this year (of the four I've read!) - In the Heart of the Canyon by Elisabeth Hyde (author of The Abortionist's Daughter). This book made me want to go on a rafting trip down the Colorado river (well, sort of - I don't know if I could take two weeks of sleeping outside and no bathrooms!). The guide is taking his 125th trip down the river, but despite all of his experience, this is one of the most complicated trips of his career. The characters were well developed, and I really enjoyed the description of the white-water rafting experience!
I liked The Abortionist's Daughter, but this book was even better!
