Lily Collins is a socially backward college student and a lover of forests and rivers. What happens when an oil spill and a handsome young man threaten her family’s mountain home?

Inspired by the author’s early memories of her grandparents, who lived on a mountain in the Appalachians, Up the River explores an older generation of mountain folks dealing with a destructive oil spill. Ways of life, family relationships, and even a romance are challenged by the highly disruptive spill, which could potentially ruin generations-old homesteads in the eastern Kentucky hills.
