RIVER ROAD by Carol Goodman-Not A Dead End

John: About half way through, I thought the plot–a woman whose daughter is killed by a car–was over. Then she is accused of killing another girl on the same road and is denied tenure.

Spanky: The author goes deeper and deeper into the theme. The woman is an alcoholic and the second girl her student, who is on drugs.

John: As the story drifts to the drug culture I wondered how it would all end. But it all makes sense and we get back to the death of her daughter.
