Electroshock therapy, child abuse and modern-day slavery… just another day in Christine’s life.
Take a heart-wrenching yet inspiring ride through one woman’s incredible journey that is so compelling that you are simultaneously trying to look away and unable to stop yourself from reading on.
Christine’s father is a wealthy, tyrannical man renowned in the diamond business. At the age of just five, little Christine is cast aside into a boarding school where she is ridiculed for two embarrassing problems. She grows up in a never-ending circle of traumatic experiences both in her boarding school and at home. It culminates into a falling out between father and child that was never fully mended, leading her into a world of promiscuity and alcohol, eventually landing her in a violent marriage.
Driven to the limits of despair and heartache, she creates a plan to escape her world of misery. Will her plan work?

That is why already I have to implore you lovely readers to read this moving book; it is beautiful, heart-breaking and touching all at the same time, and you will not be disappointed if you read it.
No Fourth River chronicles the life and struggles of a young girl who faces unspeakable acts, crimes, tribulations and many more things. It is, however, a powerfully moving book that will be an inspiration to many people and so, I would already implore you wonderful readers to read this incredible book.
Christine Clayfield has written her story in a way which speaks to the reader. At the core of her story, told in a novelized way, is the tone of refusing to be a victim and that there is hope, even after a traumatic period. Her inspiring words and lessons laced throughout have made me want to be a better human being… I love when a book makes me feel this way. I love feeling inspired and wanting to be a better human, so again, I applaud Clayfield for her talent to reach me, and hopefully the rest of her readers to feel this way.
Clayfield is a fantastic writer, and I was impressed by the high quality of her words, she has poured her heart and soul into her book, and has been so open. I admire her for this and her message of hope which is prominent throughout her book. Clayfield is a good human being… the world may be full of terrible people but if there are more people like Clayfield then the world would be ok. Her words were eloquent as well as poignant; she knows how to evoke feelings/emotions in the reader as she took me on a roller coaster of emotions. She is a talented author and a well-accomplished woman, and so I can’t help but adore her!
