Audience Reviews for Follow the River
I read some of the other reviews for "Follow the River". It seems if you have read the book, the movie is disappointing. I haven't read the book. I enjoyed the movie. What is the saying? "If fate hands you lemons, make lemonade."
Mary Ingles makes the best of her situation, but in the end decides it better to leave her children with the Shawnee and try and make it back to her husband many days travel away. That would be one tough decision.
