‘Across the Surface’ By Greg Welch

Emily just caught her husband cheating, just days after her father’s death. After storming out of her house, Emily drives to the river where her father created warm memories with she and her family. But when night comes, Emily realizes that childhood nostalgia is not the only thing that lives in that river.
