Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser (Song of the Current book 1)
“Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. For generations, her family has been called by the river god, who has guided their wherries on countless voyages throughout the Riverlands. At seventeen, Caro has spent years listening to the water, ready to meet her fate. But the river god hasn’t spoken her name yet—and if he hasn’t by now, there’s a chance he never will.
Caro decides to take her future into her own hands when her father is arrested for refusing to transport a mysterious crate. By agreeing to deliver it in exchange for his release, Caro finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies, with dangerous pirates after the cargo—an arrogant courier with a secret—and without the river god to help her. With so much at stake, Caro must choose between the life she always wanted and the one she never could have imagined for herself.” - taken from Goodreads.com
A little slow to start with all of the sailing terminologies for me and I kept getting distracted by a couple of other titles. Once the story had me hooked, I couldn't put it down. Caro is a determined young woman who is left with a nearly impossible task to complete in order to save her father. When she goes against the orders she received, Caro is quickly pulled into political drama that changes how she sees her place in the world. A slow burning romance also occurs. Now I cannot wait to see what the next book holds.
