"Burkey balances her well-written storyline by combining...literary tools with plenty of twists and turns"-5 Star Review from Pacific Book Review Dr. Jane O'Neil, an American psychiatry professor, books her family on a rafting trip down the Zambezi River, seeking redirection and reconnection with her troubled son. Katura Masaku, a smart but impulsive teenager in Botswana, sneaks across the border to Victoria Falls, naively confident she can rescue her wrongfully-arrested older brother. Her optimism is crushed by a corrupt police department that's willing to punish the innocent. And Jane's river trip ends violently with a hijacking that turns into an extended hostage situation. Zimbabwe's political chaos, not to mention the jungle itself, puts both Jane and Katura in danger. Will they succumb to their desperation, or find the courage to make it home? Rubbing Stones is an emotionally-charged debut novel about two families from opposite corners of the world, thrown together in a place where political and personal currents are more dangerous than the Zambezi that threatens to drown them. How far will they go to save the ones they love?
