"River Jordan's Saints in Limbo is a compelling story of the mysteries of existence and, specially, the mysteries of the human heart."
--Ron Rash, author of Serena and Chemistry and Other Stories

"I lose myself in River's writing--transported to a different time and place-- and in this case,  to one that makes the ordinary mystical and magical. I give it FIVE diamonds in the Pulpwood Queen's TIARA!"
--Kathy L. Patrick, founder of the Pulpwood Queens Book Clubs and author of The Pulpwood Queens' Tiara Wearing, Book Sharing Guide to Life

Ever since her husband Joe died, Velma True's world has been limited to what she can see while clinging to one of the multicolored threads tied to the porch railing of her home outside Echo, Florida.

When a mysterious stranger appears at her door on her birthday and presents Velma with a special gift, she is rattled by the object's ability to take her into her memories--a place where Joe still lives, her son Rudy is still young, unaffected by the world's hardness, and the beginning is closer than the end. As secrets old and new come to light, Velma wonders if it's possible to be unmoored from the past's deep roots and find a reason to hope again.
