Joseph Freda's 'The Patience of Rivers' is an irresistible novel set in an upstate New York river community during the transformative summer of 1969. Against the backdrop of Woodstock, moon landings, and the throes of change, the lives of the residents intertwine. Eighteen-year-old Nick Lauria navigates first love and his friend's haunting Vietnam letters while leading canoe trips. Amidst the rock-and-roll culture, his family's campgrounds struggle against secret dealings with their partner, all against the impending wave of development. With boisterous tenderness, this novel captures a town's final years before transition, portraying growing youth, a disintegrating family, and a sunlit world on the cusp of irrevocable change.
