River House

River House by Sarahlee Lawrence is similar to my recent review of Heart in the right place. Both are daughters out in the world who have returned home. Jourdan's memoir has a lighter touch than Lawrence's memoir which is more introspective and a look at the land. Lawrence is in her twenties and has spent much of her young adult life as a rafting guide around the world. She begins feeling a call to return home to her arid Oregon farming roots. When she returns to build her house she also explores her relationship with the family land and with her father, who is dealing with his own relationship with the hard farming life. I enjoyed this memoir and wonder what happened afterwards.
