Run, River Currents – A Debut Novel by Ginger Marcinkowski

A Debut Novel by Ginger Marcinkowski

Ginger Marcinkowski was raised between the two tiny towns of Fort Fairfield, Maine and Plaster Rock, New Brunswick, Canada, a setting that deeply influenced the writing of her first novel.

She graduated from William Penn University with a degree in Business Management, a career she never aspired to.

Ginger’s true desire to write returned when she enrolled in a graduate writing course at Wilkes University of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania earning her Masters of Fine Art in 2011. She interned with Etruscan Press, and was a reader for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship. She had previously studied at Algonkian writers’ conferences and has attended the New York Pitch Conference. She wrote and published short stories in small literary journals for which she garnered several honorary mentions.

Ginger’s first book, with a release date of August 3rd, 2012, Run River Currents reveals Ginger’s lyical voice as she utilizes her own vivid memories of her life along a powerful river whose waters both gave and took life.

Run, River Currents

As the last of the mourners departed the ornate Catholic Church, Emily entered a side door unnoticed, walked to the coffin, and punched her dead father in the face. “You’ll never be dead enough,” she whispered. “Never.”

Determined to recover from the hands of a father who sexually abused her and an emotionally distant mother, twenty-seven-year-old Emily Evans seeks the peace she’d lost in her youth. Yet, shattered by the betrayal of those she was taught to respect and love, she fears that she may never overcome the devastating effects of generations of abuse. Will she ever let herself truly open up to the power of unconditional love?

Set in the rich backwoods of New Brunswick, Canada, Run, River Currents is inspired by a true story of abuse, pain, and the struggle to find healing and forgiveness.
