The first novel by acclaimed Greek writer Lena Manta to appear in English translation, The House by the River is an intimate, emotionally powerful saga following five young women as they realize that no matter the men they choose, the careers they pursue, or the children they raise, the only constant is home. Theodora knows she can’t keep her five beautiful daughters at home forever—they’re too curious, too free spirited, too like their late father. And so, before each girl leaves the small house on the riverside at the foot of Mount Olympus, Theodora makes sure they know they are always welcome to return. A devoted and resilient mother, Theodora has lived through World War II, through the Nazi occupation of Greece, and through her husband’s death, and now she endures the twenty-year-long silence of her daughters’ absence. Her children have their own lives—they’ve married, traveled the world, and courted romance, fame, and even tragedy. But as they become modern, independent women in pursuit of their dreams, Theodora knows they need her—and each other—more than ever. Have they grown so far apart that they’ve forgotten their childhood house in its tiny village, or will their broken hearts finally lead them home?

The House On The River: Insurrection tries to shed light on the path of deviation in the backdrop of roles played by different state and nonstate actors in a conflict zone. It offers an insight of the conflict situation from an insurgents point of view. Samir, who has had a rebellious childhood, is provoked to join a group of insurgents to avenge his best friends murder. After initial failures, he devises a plan to kill a renegade who works for armed forces and is responsible for his friends death. He makes his own gun, but his resolve to kill the renegade cedes after he shoots and injures him. Despite strong forces that tend to influence the characters, inherent and elemental traits in them keep resisting the coercion against all odds.

It is 1926 and thirty-year-old Bill Kane is at a crossroads. Seven years after falling in love and marrying Mildred Read, the Chicago-born orphan is tired of sheep ranching for his father-in-law in desolate Oreana, Idaho and needs a change. Barely able to feed and clothe his five growing children, Bill spends their last dime on an electrician correspondence course and gets a job with Idaho Power. Hoping to rekindle the spark that seven years of hard work, poverty, and the demands of children have had on their once fairy tale marriage, Bill moves his family to Boise. Mildred's hopes of Bill finding faith and fulfillment in their new life are derailed, however, when he meets Sylvester, a cynical co-worker. The determined and often ill-tempered Bill must face his past as he struggles to find happiness and meaning in his life. Will Mildred's patience, loving ways and Mormon faith help the stubborn Bill discover the peace he is craving as they work through trials, heartache, and the Great Depression? Or will Sylvester succeed in convincing him that there is no God?The House by the River is the true story of a family's struggle for survival and one man's journey to understand himself and the purpose of life.
