    PDF cloudunblock.co ´ The Waters of Kronos PDF/EPUB ↠ The Waters ePUB waters mobile, kronos mobile, The Waters kindle, The Waters of Kronos PDFI really enjoy Richter’s writing In this novel however an old John Donner travels across country back to his hometown of Uniontown Pennsylvania Uniontown has since been flooded by a dam project He first visits the cemeteries in town recalling all the churches and reconnecting But most of the town is underwater The story then jumps into the fantasy realm as he takes a wagon ride into the long ago past where he finds his family They are cordial but don’t recognize him Several scenes of longing and nostalgia ensue But he must remain an outsider Not much drama to the story I think it would have made a great short story maybe with an unreuited love story in there somewhere3 stars The writing uality is uite good here but not enough to overcome the lack of drama
