Beyond the moment of sorrow and the grief that envelops him, the author paints a poignant and moving portrait of a life interrupted many times over. Filled with joy and pain, humor and sadness, this story will resonate with anyone who has struggled with self identity and transformation, and the wonder, shock, and comedy of entering a new cultural world. This is a story of choice and consequences, race and religion, childhood, and fatherhood. River Crossings is a journey of fulfilling final promises of a son to a mother, promises that must be kept, promises with their own challenges.About the Author:Hemchand Gossai is Professor of Religious Studies at Georgia Southern University
