On a small, soon-ravaged raft that quickly becomes their entire universe through dangerous waters alive with deadly animals and fish, their only choice: to continue on despite the rush of insects swarming them by day, the sounds of encroaching predators at night. Without food or means of communication, with no one to hear their cries for help or on a search-and-rescue expedition to find them, the author and her husband make their way, fighting to conquer starvation and navigate the brute force of the river, their only hope for survival, in spite of hunger and weakening resolve, to somehow, miraculously, hang on and find their way east to a large riverside town - before it is too late.

I was SO looking forward to the availability of this book. What a fascinating premise. The story is very good, but the narrator ruined it. Her little girl, breathy voice changed the entire dynamic of the story. And, to add further annoyance to the listener, she articulated every syllable in a peculiar, grating affectation: Short e became a (neck/nack, bread/ brad, death/dath,...). Then, short a became o (raft/roft, match/motch). Short i became e (this/thes, kiss/kess, fish/fesh). Excellent opportunity missed here, Audible.
