The Risen

A Novel

By Ron Rash
Narrated by: Richard Ferrone
Length: 5 hours 21 minutes

The Risen

“The most overused cliche in the book business is 'page-turner,' so I will ask indulgence when I declare that The Risen by Ron Rash is a page-turner in the truest sense of the phrase. The Risen explores a young boy's coming of age, sibling rivalry, a decades-old mystery, and extreme life choices. It is an exciting read for all who appreciate literature at its finest.”
