A House by the River

By William Miller
Illustrated by Ying-Hwa Hu, Cornelius Van Wright

Paperback: $9.95

Six Pack: $59.70

As the worst storm in years approaches, Belinda wishes more than ever that she and her mother lived in town, where the houses are on high ground, safe from the rising river. Their old house, with its leaky roof and rickety stairs, hardly seems strong enough to endure the fierce winds and driving rain. If only her father were alive, Belinda thinks, then she’d feel safer.

But what Belinda discovers through the long night of the storm is that her house is made of more than wood and brick—it is also fortified by her family’s love.

The award-winning team of William Miller, Cornelius Van Wright, and Ying-Hwa Hu present one of their most powerful works yet. A House by the River is an unforgettable story of love, courage, and the true meaning of home.
